A mathematical model describing the interrelationship between the dissolved oxygen concentration of a river and its various sources and sinks has been adapted for use in a study of the Lower Fox River in Wisconsin. The analysis assumes steady-state conditions and describes the longitudinal distribution of dissolved oxygen in the river from Neenah-Menasha in Green Bay, a distance of approximately 40 miles. The model was verified for various conditions of waste loading, river temperature, and river flow. The model was then used to evaluate the effect on water quality of implementing proposed effluent limitations for industrial dischargers and 90% BOD removal from municipal waste sources, as an estimate of levels of treatment required.
