Project Overview

The MPCA has selected the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) watershed model to simulate watershed hydrology and water quality to assess various restoration scenarios in the Little Cannon River watershed. The SWAT model is an important tool in developing an understanding of existing conditions and simulating conditions under various management scenarios to inform the development of implementation strategies and plans to restore and protect streams and lakes. This project will finalize the development of the SWAT model for the Little Cannon River watershed and apply it to evaluate scenarios to assist in addressing these management needs.
