The spreadsheet capability of the Lotus Symphony program package was used to simulate the dissolved oxygen dynamics in streams and rivers. 'Windows' were created for entering data, performing computations, and presenting results in tabular and graphical form, 'Macros' were defined for invoking specific operations which would facilitate all phases of the computational procedures. Because of its ease in learning and rapid recalculation capability, Symphony can be a useful tool for preliminary screening of water quality control alternatives.
