    Two major regions were identified for this purpose. Time distributions Data for land-treatment measures, such as contouring and terracing, from experi- mental watersheds were included. The equation was developed mainly for small watersheds for which only daily rainfall and watershed data are ordinarily available. It was developed from. What is a watershed? A watershed—sometimes called a basin or drainage basin—is an area of land that drains into a particular river, lake or other body of water. We all live in a watershed. Some watersheds, like that of a stream or creek, are small. Others, like the Chesapeake Bay watershed, are large. What is the Chesapeake Bay watershed?

This map shows one set of watershed boundaries in the continental United States; these are known as National hydrologic units (watersheds). Jul 22,  · Future land use change was simulated using CLUE-S (Conversion of Land Use and its Effects at Small regional extent) land use change model. The result showed an increase in chat cultivation from ha in to and ha in under current conditions (scenario-1) and good watershed management (scenario-2), ogmaexpo.com: Shimelis B. Gebere, Tena Alamirew, Broder J. Merkel, Assefa M. Melesse.

    Tool 1: Land Use Planning. Since impervious cover has such a strong influence on watershed quality, a watershed manager must critically analyze the degree and location of future development (and impervious cover) that is expected in a watershed. Consequently, land use planning ranks as perhaps the single most important watershed protection tool. A watershed is an area of land that drains rain water or snow into one location such as a stream, lake or wetland. These water bodies supply our drinking water, water for agriculture and manufacturing, offer opportunities for recreation (canoeing and fishing, anyone?) and .

size. They may be as small as watersheds of rivulets or as large as watersheds of major rivers. A watershed is physically distinguished into lowland and upland or, in conventional terms, upstream and downstream.

These two physical entities are integrated through a number of bio-physical and socio-economic linkages.

Rivers originate in the uplands. Small Watershed Program. Suggested changes in the program were to reduce the time needed to plan and install projects, build structures to physical capacity, emphasize other uses of water, and assure public access to reservoirs.

Key Words: Small Watershed Program, Community Development, Development, Public services. Water resources. About the Studies. Small watershed case studies are being conducted to complement the national assessment.

These studies will provide in-depth assessments of water quality and other benefits at a finer scale than is possible for the National Assessment. Presently there are three CEAP watershed categories: ARS Benchmark Watersheds.
