Daily discharge and suspended sediment from two 5,000 ha watersheds in Iowa were monitored over 10 years to characterize water quality impacts, sediment sources, and conservation practices. Both watersheds demonstrated flashy hydrographs after rain events and exhibited incised channels. Models predicted reduced sediment loads post-conservation practice, but monitoring showed no significant difference between the two watersheds. However, there were differences in the sediment source for each watershed.
