The purpose of this document is to describe the Calibration and Validation of the water quality river model, QUASAR, applied to the River Exe. The model will be used to help assess the environmental impact of the Wimbleball Pump Storage Scheme proposed by SWWSL. 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% 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.
