Improving road erosion modeling for the Lake Tahoe Basin and evaluating BMP strategies for fine sediment reduction at watershed scales
Please contact Bill Elliot with questions regarding the final reports.
This project parameterized the Watershed Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) model, improved the WEPP: Road interface, and validated the WEPP model for the Lake Tahoe Basin. The project also developed a GIS-based quantitative approach to predict sediment loading using WEPP: Road, identified erosional “hot spots” from a watershed-scale road network, and determined the optimal road network design that minimizes sediment production through best management practice (BMP) application.
