Water quality data, routinely collected by state and federal agencies, has often been of little use in directly determining stream standards compliance. This problem is due to the discrepancy between the statistical nature of water quality sampling and nonstatistically expressed stream standards. However, the use of probability and statistical models in water quality analysis may pro-vide useful assessments of river water quality with stream ...
