The long-term simulation of soil erosion and transport of contaminants and nutrients process in a river basin allows us to predict the impacts generated by the alterations of the environment and the scope of the potential contamination. The use of modeling tools such as SWAT (Soil and Water Assessment Tool) that integrates basin-level information on land use and management for hydrological simulation, requires specific data of soil and land use to define the Hydrological Response Units (HRU). These HRU are the basis of the simulation, grouping HRU according to hydrological response characteristics. The availability of quality data at the regional level is a key factor for obtaining robust models. One of the greatest shortcomings is found in obtaining hydropedological data bases associated with soil GIS shape.
