    Conference Title : Innovations in Watershed Management under Land Use and Climate Change. Proceedings of the 2010 Watershed Management Conference, Madison, Wisconsin, USA, 23-27 August 2010.

    Abstract : An innovative approach was used to build a hydrologic model of the 230-square mile Vermillion River Watershed, MinnesotaminnesotaSubject Category: Geographic Entities

    . The model was used to set peak flow standards at locations where the Vermillion River or one of its tributaries crosses a community boundary. XP-SWMM was chosen because it is well-suited to detailed modeling of urban watershedswatershedsSubject Category: Topographic Features

    data were used to account for the spatial and temporal variability of rainfall. In order to build confidence in modeling results and facilitate stakeholder buy-in, the model was calibrated using seven stream flowstream flowSubject Category: Miscellaneous
