A prototype interactive planning environment was developed using several mathematical techniques, a modeling language, graphic displays, and a user-friendly interface. The mathematical techniques include a steady-state water quality model, modeling-to-generate-alternatives (MGA), linear programming, and multiobjective programming. The modeling language was designed to relieve the analyst from the burden of formatting a general mathematical model for solution using existing mathematical programming packages. The graphic displays provide visual presentation of data for effective data manipulation and comparisons, and the user friendly interface was designed for engineers who are not necessarily computer experts.
