Abstract

Water quality modeling and regulatory management guideline study was conducted on a 1499-ha (3,700 acres) watershed in the Naval Security Group Activity (NSGA) Northwest base at the Virginia/North Carolina border, USA.

The watershed has a baseline nonpoint source pollution (NFS) contributing to the Northwest River that eventually influxes to the Chesapeake Bay. Stormwater runoff discharge from the watershed influxes to the Northwest River, approximately 6.44 km (4 miles) upstream of the intake from the City of Chesapeake's potable water supply. A distributed parameter water quality model and
