Mathematical models used to simulate the water quality and the processes of self-purification of water bodies are important tools to support effective water resource management. The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of organic pollution on water quality and the assimilative capacity of organic matter in the Ribeirao Vermelho stream situated in the city of Lavras in Minas Gerais. The deoxygenation rate (K1) and reaeration (K2) were determined and tested in three segments of the… CONTINUE READING
