The Study Team will make and define a series of assumptions about future land use, urban development,
climate, geomorphic processes, the agricultural drainage system, and watershed management in the MRB.
These assumptions will be used as input variables in the model system to simulate future (some specified
year, e.g., 2025) conditions. The small watershed, large watershed, and river water quality model systems
will be used to simulate future (without projects or change in management) conditions of system hydrology,
loading rates, and Minnesota River water quality conditions.
