A Simple Model Aids Watershed Management Pollutant BMP Implementation and Contaminant Trading
The San Diego Creek watershed in Southern California contains elevated levels of nitrogen and selenium from historic geologic and anthropomorphic sources. A regional program has been initiated to characterized the contamination and develop technologies and implementation plans that will bring the watershed into compliance with established water quality targets. As part of the program, a computer model was developed to predict changes in water quality due to the implementation of various best management practices throughout the watershed. In addition, the model estimates construction and operation costs and other important decision-making factors so that limited resources may be spent in the most efficient manner possible and water quality improvements are maximized. The model has been developed in a generic and modular fashion such that it may be applied to a virtually limitless array of similar watersheds to achieve similar results.
