General Comments:The authors state in the first column on page 6 that: "The original DRAINMOD and SWAT were removed from further evaluation in this review for not meeting the criteria of sub-hourly time steps necessary for urban hydrologic applications." However, this statement is not correct about SWAT. The IEVENT flag can be set to simulate sub-daily rainfall, runoff and other hydrologic processes as described in the "Ch.4-SWAT Input:.BSN" documentation available on the SWAT website at https://swat.tamu.edu/docs/. This option has not been widely used by the SWAT user community to date but it is available.
