BMP, Model, nutrients, sediment
The Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model was applied to quantify the impacts of implementing Water Quality Management Plans (WQMPs) on sediment and nutrients in the West Fork Watershed of Trinity River Basin in Texas. A pre-BMP scenario representing conditions of the watershed prior to the implementation of WQMPs, and a post-BMP scenario representing the conditions of the watershed after implementation of WQMPs were simulated to estimate the reductions in nonpoint source pollution due to WQMP implementation.
