Integrating Models Into Water Quality Solutions
What is water quality modeling? It can be defined as numerical modeling related to assessing and characterizing the biological, chemical, and physical properties of natural water systems for the purpose of providing decision makers with water quality-based information for assessing environmental regulations aimed at maintaining and protecting water quality, human health, and aquatic resources. A numerical model provides a quantitative tool to assess management decisions and their implications for improving water quality. That said, it is still only one tool in the toolbox, and environmental solutions require a broad-based view of all the factors affecting water quality restoration (environmental, economic, social).
