Abstract: Water quality models are widely used in the analysis of natural water systems to evaluate the impacts of wastewater handling alternatives and changes in land use. Linear, steady-state, first-order models are most commonly applied. This article presents a BASIC program for performing planning level analyses of stream and river systems. The program computes instream concentrations of DO, BOD, and NBOD.
