This paper explores the potential of the Soil Conservation Service Curve Number (SCS-CN) approach in water quality modeling of kinetic wastewater treatment process using the experimentally derived pan evaporation data. Parameter CN is found to be dependent on evaporation and abstraction as well in addition to the influent concentration. For very low or very high values of influent concentration, CN exhibited an asymptotic variation approaching hundred and zero, respectively. Using the data on source water quality and removal, it is possible to compute CN and subsequently, the removal quality at an abstraction well.
