This study adopted the water quality model [Water Quality Analysis Simulation Program (WASP)] to simulate and evaluate the impacts of the opening and closure of an interception system at the tributary of Love River on mainstream water quality. The gates were opened respectively for 4, 12, and 24 hours to assess the impact on biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and ammonia nitrogen (NH3-N) in the water bodies of Love River. The WASP model was used to evaluate the self-purification capacity of the river. According to the results of the model estimation, it takes 5 days for NH3-N and BOD in the water bodies of Love River to return to normal and for the water to restore its original water quality after the closure of the Baozhu Ditch gate. Results of this study can be used as a reference for Love River watershed management, and the WASP modeling can be applied for decision makers to develop appropriate management strategies of the interception system.
