A linear programming model for optimal waste load allocation in the Willamette River is proposed. The goal is to determine the degree of waste removal that must be undertaken at individual water treatment sites to meet the desired dissolved oxygen standard at a minimal regional expenditure. The objective function is framed in terms of treatment costs, and the decision variables are the efficiencies at which the plants operate.
