A water-quality assessment was made of Illinois River, Muddy Fork, Spring Creek, and Osage Creek in northwest Arkansas. Data were collected to calibrate and verify steady-state digital, stream, water-quality models.

The models were then used to simulate changes in instream diel-minimum dissolved-oxygen resulting from changes in nutrient loading.
