I am a novice.
I only have one main river, and I set the upper, middle and lower reaches.
Population, temperature, rainfall and water quality were entered separately. And predict the water quality changes in the next 2050.
I found that no matter how I changed the rainfall and temperature, the water quality did not change.
But once I change the water quality. For example, if I specifically choose a single year, or 2-3 years, the results will be different.

My question is, shouldn't it be the change in rainfall and temperature that will cause the water quality to change?

An increase in rainfall can increase the values of nitrogenous components in the waters of the reservoir basins. This is suggested by a study in the Magazine Science, (https://www.science.org/doi/full/10.1126/science.aan2409). And if you are located in a delta of a coastal lagoon, these contributions can alter the dissolved oxygen values.
