Abstract

The objectives of this study were to evaluate the performance and applicability of Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model in predicting monthly sediment yield and to suggest the Best Management Practices to control sediment yield. Eleven years monthly meteorological, flow and sediment data were used for model calibration and validation. The calibrated model is then applied in the Mohgaon Watershed to simulate BMPs including filter strip and stream bank stabilization. The results will help in deciding suitable conservation practices to be implemented over the watershed to reduce sedimentation.
