This paper considers solving a stochastic waste load allocation model in a chance-constrained format. The model explicitly takes into account the uncertainty of the water quality parameters including their spatial and cross-correlations. Random characteristics of the coefficients in the water quality constraints are obtained by using unconditional simulation. A hypothetical example is used to demonstrate the methodologies and investigate the effects of water quality compliance reliability and correlation structures of the water quality parameters on the optimal solution of the waste load allocation problem.
