Modeling is increasingly becoming a part of the Wasteload Allocation Process. The US EPA provides guidance, technical training and computer software in support of this program. This paper reviews the support available to modelers through the Wasteload Allocation Section of EPA's Office of Water Regulation and Standards and through the Center for Water Quality Modeling of EPA's Office of Research and Development. The paper also looks to the future of water quality modeling and the prospect for principles from Artificial Intelligence increasing the accessibility of these tools to practitioners.
