General Comments:The authors state in the study that: "... we have developed the SWAT‐LAG model by coupling the SWAT‐M model (Zhang et al., 2013) with a TTD model, which includes simulation of N transport through slower groundwater pathways." However, Zhang et al. (2013) report the development and testing of SWAT-C, which was focused on carbon cycling. It is clear that the authors pointed to the wrong study regarding the source of SWAT-M but it is not clear which study was the actual source of SWAT-M. It is possible that they were referring to the following study, which describes a SWAT-MC model: Shao, G., D. Zhang, Y. Guan, Y. Xie and F. Huang. 2019. Application of SWAT Model with a modified groundwater module to the semi-arid Hailiutu River Catchment, northwest China. Sustainability. 11(7): 2031. Doi: 10.3390/su11072031.
