 Watershed modeling is recognized as a valuable tool for predicting the effect of land management on surface water quality and can be used to make recommendations that may reduce agriculture’s impact on water quality. Modeling is dependent upon field data such as that collected in the AESA and Soil Phosphorus Limits projects.

This volume summarizes the AESAAW modeling project. The objectives were to evaluate the performance of the Alberta derived soil-runoff phosphorus relationships at the watershed scale and develop phosphorus export risk categories for selected AESA watersheds.


This information can be used to develop watershed scale phosphorus export risk maps, which allows agricultural producers and planners to determine the optimum locations for intensive livestock facilities.
