Research Project: Assessing Cumulative Effects in the South Platte River Basin Using Future Growth Scenarios

Location: Southwest Watershed Research Center

Project Number: 2022-13610-011-07-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 1, 2011
End Date: Sep 30, 2014

Objective:
Represent and model the effects of Clean Water Act-related stream-channel and stormwater management actions at a basin scale, and 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 training to EPA Regional and ORD personnel (and other agency partners) on use of the modified AGWA tool and (4) provide consultation in regard to significant nexus issues with waters of the U.S.
