Abstract
BASINS is a multipurpose environmental analysis system for use by regional, state, and local agencies in performing watershed- and water-quality based studies. This new software makes it possible to quickly assess large amounts of point source and nopoint source data in a format that is easy to use and understand. Installed on a personal computer, BASINS allows the user to assess water quality at selected stream sites or throughout an entire watershed. It is an invaluable tool that integrates environmental data, analytical tools, and modeling programs to support development of cost-effective approaches to environmental protection. New Version - Version 3.0 of the Better Assessment Science Integrating point and Nonpoint Sources (BASINS) software system has been released. BASINS has three major objectives: (1) To facilitate examination of environmental information, (2) To support analysis of environmental systems, and (3) To provide a framework for examining management alternatives.
