Validation Summary: 
General Comments:SWAT was not actually executed for this study. The authors instead used SWAT output from a previous study (listed here). The authors determined flow rates from the previous SWAT results that equaled or exceeded 50%, 80% and 95% by month. The total available monthly flow volume for all of the sub-basins were calculated based on the flow that exceeded the three percentages. Previous study: Dessu, S.B. and A.M. Melesse. 2012.
