Description Nutrient enrichment of the South Umpqua River, Oregon was linked to periphyton growth and large diel fluctuations in dissolved oxygen and pH using the water quality model QUAL2Kw. The model was used to quantify nonpoint source loading, determine the pollutant of concern, estimate natural conditions, and calculate a phosphorus total maximum daily load during summer, low-flow conditions. Control of both nonpoint and point sources is required to achieve the low instream phosphorus concentrations necessary to meet water quality criteria.
