A systems analysis approach has been undertaken in investigating the water quality responses in the Potomac River Basin. The analyses included the effects of low flow augmentation, wastewater diversions, water supply withdrawals, and increased degrees of wastewater treatment on water quality in the upper estuary. Several techniques or mathematical models capable of simulating the response of water quality in an estuary were available when the study of the Potomac Estuary was undertaken in 1965. After an investigation of the modeling systems available, the segmented estuary model developed by Dr. Robert Thomann was selected as the one which most closely conformed to the requirements of the study. It discusses the verification and uses of this model.
