—This study presents a water quality Management
program for Urban River Networks (WAQUMURIN). The
model analyzes a variety of water quality problems in urban
stream networks linked by ponds, lakes, and reservoirs, which
are subdivided into unit reach cells. A mass balance is
performed in each cell for the nonconservative contaminants
loaded from point and nonpoint sources on land. The model was
designed by GUI to provide a practical program for
management purposes. To test the performance of the model, it
was applied to the Han River network in the city of Seoul, Korea,
which has eight stream branches. The test was conducted for
BOD load and compared with measured data.
