Examination of a GIS-Based Water Quality Model using USGS Gaged Watersheds in Maryland

Water quality models are important tools used by the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) in developing Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs), which serve as water quality standards. The MDE tool, which spatially interpolates output from the Chesapeake Bay Program Watershed Model (WSM), is often used because it requires little time, data, or training. In contrast, the WSM requires extensive time, data, and training to run. This study examines if the MDE tool provides accurate estimates of pollutant loads and whether the mid-level complexity model AVGWLF.
