Heavy metal contamination of rivers is of increasing concern to society. To help predict the fate of metals in rivers, researchers have developed computer models to simulate speciation and transport of metals. Under sponsorship of the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, simplified methods were developed as a screening approach for river systems. These simplified methods are discussed in this paper. (Author abstract. )
