A multi-cell lumped parameter model of irrigation-related water quality is applied to the Mesilla Valley, and irrigated valley encompassing roughly 40,500 hectares (100,000 acres) adjacent to the Rio Grande in southern New Mexico. The model simulates diversions and pumping to meet irrigation needs, irrigation return flows, chemical transformations in the soil, and mixing in groundwater reservoirs. Data on water quality at 35 surface and groundwater sites within the valley were collected on a monthly basis over two irrigation seasons. The USBR-EPA model is evaluated in several computer simulations covering the ten-year period from 1967 through 1976.
