Watershed Description:Frio River, located in south central Texas, U.S. 
Calibration Summary:1982-90 (time step not mentioned) - SWAT flows were within 10% of measured flows 
Validation Summary: 
General Comments:SWAT was interfaced with the PHYGROW model; water balance for 115 forage sites were simulated in PHYGROW and the resulting water yields were routed through SWAT with other flows. Outflows from SWAT were routed into a municipal water valuation model to simulated the water economy of the city of Corpus Christi. The net benefits of better brush control on range sites were evaluated using the Municipal model and a range site economic model. Overall, it was found that subsidies for brush control would not be worthwhile at this time.
