During the past four decades, computer-based mathematical models of watershed hydrology have been widely used for a variety of applications including hydrologic forecasting, hydrologic design, and water resources management. The Nonpoint Source Model (NPSM) was chosen for nonpoint source pollutant modeling within three different watersheds.

Water quality management often relies upon spatially distributed watershed models for an estimation of nonpoint source pollutant fluxes, sources and fates under current conditions and possible future scenarios (Rode et al., ).In one particularly high-profile study, the largest algal bloom in Lake Erie’s history was attributed in large part to a nonpoint source labile.

In addition, feasibility analysis of SWAT is conducted to see if the watershed simulation model could be used as a component in future decision support models developed to assist in identifying integrative watershed management practices that control agricultural nonpoint source.

An ecohydrological watershed model can be used to develop an efficient watershed management plan for improving water quality.

Silberstein () best summarized the role of nonpoint source models in watershed management assessment and prioritization of future actions, and rather than paraphrase his text, it is quoted below.

And then the parameter group obtained in Xiaojiang River Watershed was extended to the entire study area to quantify the total non-point source. In this study, the SUSTAIN model was applied to a Taiwanese watershed-scale case to test the feasibility of the model and determine suitable LID practices for local use.

A model calibration and verification were performed and a sensitivity analysis was conducted on some of the model parameters. The results of distributed watershed models could be sensitive to spatial and temporal scales at which inputs and model parameters are aggregated.

This paper reports findings of a detailed sensitiv. Figure 1. Sandusky river watershed (Honey Creek watershed delineated in red).

SWAT Model and the ArcView Interface The ArcView Interface for SWAT (AVSWAT) (Di Luzio et al., ) was used for this study as it provides an easy-to-use graphical-user interface for model set-up and use. SWAT is a. There has been a steady shift towards modeling and model-based approaches as primary methods of assessing watershed response to hydrologic inputs and land management, and of quantifying watershed-wide best management practice (BMP) effectiveness.

Watershed models often require some degree of calibration and validation to achieve adequate watershed and therefore BMP representation.

Abstract [1] Implementation of nonpoint source (NPS) pollution control strategies at the watershed scale hinges on abating pollutant movement from the landscape to water bodies at minimum cost. This paper presents an integrated simulation-optimization approach for targeted implementation of agricultural conservation practices at the watershed scale.

The U.S. EPA Nonpoinc Source Model (Cahill, ) can also be used to estimate nonpoint source inputs from a sub—basin for an average year, but again the availability of necessary data is often a constraint.

Overall, however, a number of techniques exist to normalize The urban Darby Creek watershed near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, suffered flash flooding, reduced base flow, and water quality problems due to urbanization and the increase in impervious area.

In contrast, the Wysox Creek watershed in rural Bradford County, Penn-sylvania, had stream bank erosion and agricultural nonpoint source pollution.
