Humans can create a dam or build a large structure which change the course of a river, which effect an entire area. The vegetation in watersheds effects the quality of the water. Grasses, shrubs, and trees make up the majority of plant cover. As they fall and decompose, they add the organic components to the soil.

TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Research Report A Watershed Approach to Mitigating Stormwater Impacts provides a practical decision-making framework that will enable state departments of transportation (DOTs) to identify and implement offsite cost-effective and environmentally beneficial water quality solutions for stormwater.

This paper aims to study the effects of vegetation on runoff and sediment transport at the watershed scale, and to provide a theoretical basis for afforestation in the Loess area, in the nested Caijiachuan watershed, Jixian County, Shanxi Province of west China.

Forest watersheds and farmland watersheds with similar terrain features were selected through cluster analysis to Cited by: 3. Developing a Watershed Vulnerability Index Because watershed health is a dynamic property that can vary with future changes in climate and human activity, a watershed assessment also evaluates the vulnerability of watershed health to future degradation.

Mitigating Stormwater Impacts Purpose: Provide a watershed -based decision -making framework Incorporate ecosystem services in decision process Help DOTs make informed planning -level decisions when comparing in-kind, out-of-kind, or in-lieu fee treatment options for DOT projects.
