Due to the increasingly serious water quality degradation on river, the study on river water quality status assessment has attracted more and more attention of the researchers and decision-makers. In this paper, water quality assessment of Fujiang River from January 2005 to December 2005 was studied by projection pursuit model (PPM). The water quality status of Fujiang River was assessed by the use of 10 monitoring sections, with DO, CODMn, BOD5, NH3-N, Petroleum, and Volatile phenol indicators. Based on the PPM analysis procedures, the assessed sections are described into 1 “category 1”, 4 “category 2” and 5 “category 3” states in 2005. The relative comparison results show that water quality status spatial order of Fujiang River from bad to good is: Fj09<Fj02< Fj10<Fj07< Fj03<Fj05<Fj04< Fj06<Fj08<Fj01.
