A study was performed to quantify the error in results of a water quality model of the Biebrza River, Poland, due to uncertainties in calibrated model parameters. The procedure used in this study combines calibration and sensitivity analysis. Finally,the model was validated to test the model capability, where the effects of calibration errors was filtered out. The water quality model with the best combination of parameter values simulates the observed concentrations very well, although the range of modelled concentrations at each location is rather wide when other more or less equally eligible combinations of parameter values are taken into consideration.
