The plan for setting up a model was described in the document, 'QUASAR Set Up Manual', N. Murdoch an B. Mann, Dec. 1990, (NRA ref. DI/04/02/0001/D3), in which three tasks were identified. These tasks were: Task 1 - river specification; 2 - data collection and entry; 3 - model checking. This document deals with Tasks 1 and 2. The Water Quality function has to assess their response to the determination of abstraction licence applications on the basis that the proposed water resources development does not cause deterioration in water quality (if at all) of more than 10 per cent. This effect is defined using key appropriate determinands for the affected inland water or ground water. Large developments affecting almost the whole of a major river system are assessed using a water quality simulation model - QUASAR. A licence application for a Wimbleball Pumped Storage Scheme was received in January 1993.
