Abstract
The application of a non-linear programming algorithm to the problem of optimal water quality control in an estuary is described. A mathematical model gives the solution to the general mixed case of at-source treatment, regional treatment plants, and by-pass piping. The non-linear algorithm is developed in considerable detail and a sample problem is worked out. Detailed results are presented for a pilot problem to illustrate the method of solution. Actual data from the Delaware Estuary is used to solve a large scale problem and the solution is given. (Author)

Contents Notes
This report is an application of a non-linear programming algorithm to the problem of optimal water quality control in an estuary. The mathematical model that was developed gives the solution to the general mixed case of at-source treatment, regional treatment plants, and by-pass piping. The non-linear algorithm is developed in considerable detail and a sample problem is worked out. Detailed results are presented for a pilot problem to illustrate the method of solution. Actual data from the Delaware Estuary is used to solve a large scale problem and the solution is given. The results indicate that a regional treatment system for the Delaware Estuary is superior, in terms, of total cost, to other proposed schemes.
