Making Urban Trees Count: Water Balance Model Documentation
CREDITING FRAMEWORK PRODUCT #2 of Making Urban Trees Count: A Project to Demonstrate the Role of Urban Trees in Achieving Regulatory Compliance for Clean Water
A water balance model to provide an improved method to quantify the effects of urban tree canopy on stormwater runoff reduction and water quality. While the model accounts for all aspects of the water balance to generate water yield, the results are presented only for runoff reduction as described in the documentation. This paper provides the documentation for the water balance model.
