The subdivision and development of rangelands near the US–Mexico border would affect multiple ecohydrological services provided, such as recharge of the aquifer, water and sediment yield, water quality, flow rates, and downstream cultural and natural resources. We used an uncalibrated watershed model and land-change forecasting scenario to document these impacts. Our results portray changes in the water budget, including increases in surface-water runoff, water yield, and total sediment loading, as well as slight reductions in lateral soil water. We discuss the implications for the provisioning of services. This research highlights rangeland management issues important for the protection of open space, economic valuation of rangeland ecosystem services, conservation easements, and incentives to develop related markets.
