A watershed-based land prioritization model for water supply protection

A watershed-based land prioritization model for water supply protection

Forest Ecology and Management 143(1/3): 47-56

Water quality management at a watershed scale is important for water supply protection. Escalating costs of water treatment, along with the need for cooperative solutions among various water users in a watershed, reinforce the need for such approach. In a watershed approach, optimum water quality benefits can be achieved by targeting practices to those areas that have the maximum marginal value of water quality protection.
