General Comments:The present paper describes a study which aims to (1) predict streamflow in a temporary river (Celone, Apulia in southern Italy) oriented to support eco-hydrological studies such as environmental flow and hydrological alteration assessment; and (2) analyze the general reliability of some hydrological indicators evaluated by using simulated data instead of measured streamflow data. This study is not intended to be an evaluation of the SWAT model capabilities and the processes it predicts, nor a description of the basin characteristics. Going beyond a typical hydrological simulation of a basin with a temporary river system, this research work focused on the general capabilities as well as parameter uncertainties surrounding the replications of some hydrological indicators.
