This executive summary introduces water resource managers, engineers, and programmers to the Hydrological Simulation Program--FORTRAN and provides them with information that can help them in deciding whether HSPF would be useful and practical for them to use. HSPF uses digital computers to simulate hydrology and water quality in natural and man-made systems. Although data requirements are extensive and running costs are significant, HSPF is thought to be the most accurate and appropriate management tool presently available for the continuous simulation of hydrology and water quality in watersheds. The summary begins with a general overview of the model, how it compares with other models, and how it can be applied.
