In an attempt to improve managing river water quality, this paper presents a model to a three-objective WLA problem using the constraint method in conjunction with the parametric linear programming technique. The three objectives considered are: (1) maximization of total waste load discharge, (2) minimization of the largest difference in equity between dischargers, and (3) maximization of the lowest allowable water quality standard.
