        In , Congress established the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Project to address where, when, why, and how the Nation's water quality has changed, or is likely to change in the future, in response to human activities and natural factors. In response, the NAWQA Project developed multi-pronged approaches to characterize trends in diverse contaminants in the Nation’s streams Raw water quality assessment for the treatment of drinking water.

It is a major municipal water supply for the Birmingham metropolitan area, and is also used for the disposal of domestic and industrial CARJ-1 Cahaba River approximately feet upstream of Riverview WWTP discharge. Just downstream of a low-head dam. This station was identified as CR-1 in the Cahaba River Intensive Survey – Synoptic Water Quality Data Collection Study ().

In the middle Cahaba River watershed (stations CR-AH, CR-BH, and CR-6) a range of 2 to 5 metrics were exhibiting impairment. Metric results from the lower Cahaba River watershed stations (CR-7, BC-2, BC-3, BC-4 and SC-1), with the exception of SC-1, revealed 3 to 5 metrics that were indicating impairment.

fishery management problems and water-quality issues can be done with confidence because the science behind the IBI method is extensive and peer reviewed.

The GSA applied the IBI to a large regional watershed, the Cahaba River, in (Shepard and others, ), developing metrics and associated scoring criteria for the first time in an  Commonly, water quality assessment at the watershed scale is accomplished using two techniques: (a) watershed monitoring and (b) watershed modeling.

Watershed models provide a tool for linking pollutants to the receiving streams. Models provide quick and cost-effective assessment of water quality conditions, as they can simulate hydrologic
