Research Project: Spatially Integrated Environmental Modeling to Support Ecosystem Services and CWA Jurisdictional Assessment

Location: Southwest Watershed Research Center

Project Number: 2022-13610-011-06-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 20, 2010
End Date: Sep 30, 2014

Establish a scientifically defensible means of representing and modeling the effects of Clean Water Act-related stream-channel and stormwater management actions at a basin scale, and then to evaluate the cumulative basin-wide sensitivity to alternative management practices resulting from multiple permit applications and/or future landscape scenarios.

Approach: (1) Incorporate the ability to emulate different growth scenarios, (2) incorporate tools and parameter sets that will support the modeling of different best management practices, (3) provide a complete spatial database for the entire San Pedro River basin and (4) provide training to EPA Regional and ORD personnel on use of the modified AGWA tool.
