A simulation model system of the waste water pathways and the aquatic fate assessment is coupled to a discrete digitized river network. Temporal concentration distributions of down-the-drain chemicals are calculated from variable and uncertain input data and compared to monitoring data. The accuracy of the predictions are within a factor of three for the studied pilot catchments. Spatial distributions of the whole catchment give stochastic information on a regional basis for probabilistic risk assessments.
