Description: In the past few years there has been increased attention paid to problems which require a prediction of the impact of particular land use patterns on streamflow flowrates and water quality. This requirement has arisen with regard to urbanization, surface mining, forestry operations, and changes in agricultural production practices. For example, the International Joint Commission established a reference group to study the impact of non-point sources of pollutants on water quality in the Great Lakes. This group, the Pollution from Land Use Activities Reference Group (PLUARG), commissioned special studies of a number of land use activity effects. The study of runoff generation on three agricultural watersheds, which is reported here, was one of these studies. When land use effects on streamflow are to be assessed, areal variation in surface properties is a most significant factor. It is the magnitude and timing of streamflow response to storm-period inputs of rain and snowmelt from different surfaces which must be compared. The effect of these areal variations can be accounted for to a considerable extent by appropriate
