Research Project: Demonstration and Validation of a Linked Watershed-Riverine Modeling System for Dod Installations

Location: Grassland, Soil and Water Research Laboratory

Project Number: 6206-13610-007-34
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 30, 2013
End Date: Sep 30, 2014

Objective:
Demonstrate and validate a linked watershed and riverine modeling system (Hydrological Simulation Program [HSPF] - Hydrologic Engineering Centers River Analysis System [HEC-RAS]) for Department of Defence (DoD) installations.

Approach:
The modeling system will be developed and enhanced from existing watershed and riverine models. HSPF will be used to compute water flow, soil erosion/sedimentation, nutrient, and contaminant loadings; whereas HEC-RAS will be used to evaluate in-stream water quality and aquatic ecosystem responses from watersheds both within and outside an installation.
