The paper presents a mathematical model for the simulation of theecology of a wastewater stabilization reservoir (WSR). WSRs are hypertrophicaquatic systems devoted to water storage in warm countries where shortageconditions are often encountered. Several factors that affect the stabilizationreservoir’s effluent quality were taken into account: hydraulics and hydrology,solar radiation, reaeration, algae, zooplankton, organic matter, pathogens, andsediment-water interactions. The model quantifies the specific influence of eachfactor on effluent quality, and evaluating the correlation between the differentfactors. State variables included in the model were: algae, dissolved oxygen,organic matter, zooplankton and indicator bacteria. The model was applied to anItalian stabilization reservoir located in the south part of Sardinia: Simbirizzilake. The model generated satisfactory results and can be employed as a usefultool for environmental water quality management of stabilization reservoirs.
