Project Synopsis

This project aimed to raise the quality of water in the watershed by developing a method to create watershed management strategies through the integration of land-use models. The purpose of the model is to utilize data collected from monitoring to ascertain seasonal water quality criteria for Beaver Lake. This decision support system (DSS) developed was equipped to evaluate the impact on the watershed for a limited base of land management plans. This goal is for this to aid in the identification in current gaps in information that are needed to develop a watershed management plan. The project was completed in 2005.
