Streams in the Kenai River watershed are characterized by a fish-rich environment. The commercial fishing industry and recreational users compete for the fish in these streams, and resource managers strive to balance both groups’ needs while maintaining the sustainability of the resource. The ability to estimate future river conditions could help preserve the resource and a strong economy on the Kenai Peninsula. This research used the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Hydrological Modeling System, which transforms rainfall to river discharge. The main goal was to define a set of parameters that were calibrated using an event-based condition of concurrent rainfall and discharge data. The model was calibrated and validated in three sub-basins located in different environmental settings (i.e., lowlands, mid, and high elevation). View Full-Text
