The report was submitted in fulfillment of contract number 68-C-04-007 by Tetra Tech, Inc., under the sponsorship of the United States Environmental Protection Agency. This review examines the modeling research needs to support environmental decision-making for the 303(d) requirements for development of total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) and related programs such as 319 Nonpoint Source Program activities, watershed management, stormwater permits, and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) discharge evaluations. By examining the currently available models and considering the needs for TMDLs and related watershed programs, a comprehensive list of modeling research needs can be developed. More than 65 currently available models were evaluated for their capabilities and applicability to TMDL development and related watershed management activities. Evaluation tables were developed to facilitate comparison of models and inventory the potential gaps in model capabilities, and fact sheets were developed for models to provide more detailed information on the capabilities of each model. Existing integrated models systems were also evaluated and compared, based on data processing, modeling tools, and model linkages supported.
