Water quality modeling in watershed management

Mohamed, Maketab and Tang, Hong Sin (2004) Water quality modeling in watershed management. In: Malaysian Water Forum 2004, 8-10 June 2004, Renaissance Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. (Submitted)



Integrated water resources management (IWRM) is a holistic approach of understanding all the factors affecting the river system. Water quality modeling is part and parcel of IWRM and water quality models are needed to assess the impact of new pollution sources on the downstream reach or segment of the watershed. The usage of wasteload allocations and total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) in water quality management would allow for better decision-making such as the size of locations of wastewater treatment plants in a river rehabilitation project. This paper would discuss the modeling procedure, different water quality models and how the models can be used in IWRM.
