Abstract The practice of waste load allocation in water quality management involves a number of noncommensurate and conflicting objectives. In particular, the objectives considered in this multiobjective stochastic waste load allocation study were (1) the maximization of total waste discharge, (2) the maximization of instream dissolved oxygen concentration, (3) the minimization of difference in equity measures, and (4) the maximization of reliability of water quality compliance. The model was illustrated through a hypothetical example involving six waste dischargers.
