Watershed Description:

37 km^2 Townbrook (southeast New York) 
Calibration Summary:
fiogf49gjkf0d
Monthly (Oct. 99 - Sept. 2000) r2 values: streamflow = .72; dissolved P = .91; sediment = .70 (w/o Feb. & march); part. P = .40 (w/o Feb. & march) graphical comparisons - flow, sediment, particulate P, & dissolved P 
Validation Summary: 
General Comments:A binary optimization approach was used with a SWAT-REMM modeling system to determine optimal selection of parcels for riparian buffers. The total P load per year was found to reach equilibrium with a buffer width of ~30 m. The analysis resulted in obtaining the marginal utility of buffer widths and the most affordable parcels in which to establish riparian buffers.
