BASINS was developed by the EPA to integrate environmental data, analysis tools, and watershed and water quality models to help inform watershed management and total maximum daily load (TMDL) development efforts. BASINS is a desktop application that utilizes GIS capabilities to compare how land use change and various management practices affect water quality. Through BASINS, users can access national and local data related to watersheds, and can apply assessment and planning tools and run nonpoint loading and water quality models.
