Abstract: This paper presents a water quality simulation model considering the some main sources of pollution for Qarresu River near Kermanshah city in Iran . The pollutants such as biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), Total Nitrogen (TN) and Total Phosphorous (TP) descend from some industrial units. QUAL2K software is employed for simulation and estimation of pollution loads during a year. The comparison and assessment of pollutants density shows the best location of any wastewater treatment plant considering the economic and environmental condition.
Keywords: BOD, TN, TP, Qarresu River, QUAL2K.

Scope of the Article: Water Supply and Drainage
