The Office of Water (OW) has set program goals of improving the productivity and technical quality of wasteload allocation modeling and water quality-based permitting in the States and Regions. The Monitoring and Data Support Division (MDSD) in the OW is channeling its initial efforts into developing a variety of interactive programs to facilitate wasteload allocation modeling. The immediate office staff of OW is applying artificial intelligence methods to use these techniques and, more generally, to develop permit limits from wasteload allocations. A summary of these two programs is given.
