HSPF QUAL2E PLOAD SWAT (Soil Water Assessment Tool) Physically based model developed to predict the impact of land management practices on water, sediment, and

agricultural chemical yields on complex watersheds Considers varying soils, land use, and management conditions Assimilates point source contributions Performs flow and water quality routing in stream reaches Classifying land use Distribution of Hydrologic Response Units

SWAT View HSPF (Hydrological Simulation Program Fortran) ver 1.2 watershed model that simulates nonpoint source runoff and pollutant loadings for a watershed combines these with point source contributions performs flow and water quality routing in reaches.

The HSPF and SWAT model learning curve is very time consuming Help tools are useful for BASINS, but SWAT and HSPF lack good users manual
