Description In-stream, water-quality models provide guidance in watershed management decisions by linking pollutant loads to changes in water quality. These models are particularly useful for determining wasteload allocations, developing numeric nutrient criteria, and aiding in total maximum daily load (TMDL) analyses. This study presents a data collection methodology suited to meet basic in-stream, water-quality modeling requirements for a commonly used model (QUAL2Kw). Although most situations will require additional calibration and data for model corroboration, this approach provides an initial framework to aid in the judicious use of resources to meet watershed management decision-making needs within the context of wasteload allocation and/or numeric nutrient criteria development.
