SEDIMENTATION AND EROSION CONTROL IMPLICATIONS FOR WATER QUALITY MANAGEMENT

Erosion and sedimentation, including sediment transport through a watershed system, play important but complex roles in water quality management. The most meaningful way to evaluate the relative effectiveness of various erosion control methods for water quality management is via continuous simulation models. If water quality goal attainment is attempted by application of source controls within some specified technology limits (including costs), however, a more simplistic approach may be used for analysis of this nonpoint source of environmental pollution. This paper focuses on the latter technique, but also presents the results of more sophisticated analysis methods for illustrative purposes.
