The study examined an urbanizing watershed, the Reedy River basin near Greenville, South Carolina. The objective was to determine certain hydrologic characteristics of the basin using available data and to investigate changes brought about in these characteristics by the process of urbanization. A self-calibrating version of the Stanford Watershed Model named OPSET was applied to the Reedy River data. To investigate changes in the hydrologic characteristics, parameters were estimated for a rural watershed comparable to the Reedy River basin in size and configuration. Two applications were used to investigate the effects of precipitation and diversions on the OPSET-estimated parameters.
