Project Overview

The goal of this project is to develop forestry related best management practice (BMP) pollutant reduction/management efficiencies, costs, and management information applicable to Minnesota forests and incorporate these BMPs into the Hydrological Simulation Program FORTRAN (HSPF) model Scenario Application Manager (SAM) tool. By incorporating forestry BMPs into the existing SAM tool, forestry related management scenarios can be evaluated for potential impacts on surface waters and can inform the development of watershed restoration and protection strategies.
