POLLUTANT LOAD REDUCTION GOAL (PLRG) MODELING TOOL
Abstract:Many local governments and regulating agencies are imposing water pollution control strategies to protect and restore streams and lakes from urban development. These strategies often require watershed assessments and watershed protection plans (WPP). This requires the estimation of current and predicted pollutant loads on the steam systems, as well as identification of control measures (BMPs) to meet the water quality goals. The development, management, and regulatory communities need a tool that is simplistic, effective, and flexible in its application and methodology. This concept has prompted the increased use of spreadsheet models in place of more complex water quality models (SWMM, BASINS, etc.) that require large amounts of data.
