Recently extreme value statistics have proven useful in environmental applications like the assessment of sea-levels, wind speeds and ozone concentrations. In this paper, after a brief overview of the statistical theory of extreme values, modelling issues are discussed with stress on applications in water quality management. Risk analysis procedures are presented that consider the extremal behaviour of water quality in the design stage of environmental constructions.
