Description: In this paper, two watershed management models are being compared using flow at the outlet of the Ganagagigue watershed located in the Grand River Basin in Southern Ontario, Canada. These two models are Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) and European Hydrological System model (MIKESHE). The main objectives are to test the performance of two models for simulating the flow process at a watershed scale. To assess the performance of both models, simulation results were compared to measured daily/monthly flows using Nash-Sutcliffe coefficient of efficiency (E), root mean square error (RSR) and coefficient of determination (R2). The area of the watershed is about 53 km2 and the general slope is less than 1.5%. The main land use in the watershed is agriculture which makes it suitable for both proposed watershed models. The results showed that both models are relatively good in simulation of flow rates either daily or monthly.
