Watershed Description:Three watersheds, 1.53, 2.15, & 2.26 ha in size, that are located at the Agriculture Canada Stavely Range Substation in the Porcupine Hills region in southwestern Saskatchewan, Canada. 
Calibration Summary:1998 - visual calibration 
Validation Summary:Daily (1999-2000) E values: -0.005 to -34.686 
General Comments:Watersheds were characterized by ungrazed, heavy grazing, & very heavy grazing, respectively. Evaluations used to test SWAT included AE, RMS, RMSE, CRM, & EF. Model performance was found to be poor; measured runoff was greatly underpredicted and problems were found with predicted snowmelt runoff problems.
