WARMF: A Decision Support System for Watershed Management

In response to the shift from command and control to watershed based planning, a revolutionary watershed decision support system called Watershed Analysis Risk Management Framework (WARMF) was developed by Systech Engineering under sponsorship from Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). It is a tool designed to support the watershed approach. It guides stakeholders to develop and evaluate water quality management alternatives for a river basin. It takes them through a series of steps and presents them with information in a logical manner so that they can understand their watershed and make informed decisions. WARMF also provides a procedure to calculate the total maximum daily load (TMDL) of pollutants. WARMF has undergone several peer reviews by independent experts under EPA guidelines and will soon be available in the public domain.
