Construction and operation activities at Corps of Engineers CE water resource projects can impact the quality of surface waters. A variety of numerical water quality models are required to assess these impacts, to evaluate various structural and operational alternatives for water quality control, and to determine cause and effect relationships of water quality problems. To help meet these needs, some of the RD activities within the CE have been directed toward developing water quality models for reservoirs, rivers, and estuaries. This paper summarizes the status and availability of the reservoir and riverine water quality models.
