A two-day workshop on water quality modelling in the Peace and Athabasca Rivers was held at Environment Canada's National Hydrology Research Institute in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on March 22-23, 1993. This workshop was part of the Northern River Basins Study (NRBS) and brought together experts in riverine ecology and water quality modelling from government, industry, and university communities. The goal of the workshop was to review and assess available modelling approaches for estimating the impact of biological oxygen demand (BOD) and nutrient loadings on the water quality of the Peace and Athabasca River systems. Primarily, this workshop dealt with Questions Five and Seven of the Study which, in part, fall under the responsibility of the Nutrients Component Group. These questions deal with the effect of nutrient loading on water quality and with the concentrations of dissolved oxygen (DO) required to protect riverine biota.
