Catchment Wide River WQ Modelling
Including Source Apportionment

WRc is working with SEPA to support them in building water quality models for all catchments in Scotland. The work involves building and calibrating models using the SIMCAT tool originally developed by WRc for the Environment Agency, and ensuring that they can be used in UKWIR’s SAGIS tool to enable source apportionment. The models will be used by SEPA to assist them with their water quality planning and to communicate information on catchment management to other stakeholders. WRc is also providing training and direct support to SEPA staff on the use of SIMCAT and SAGIS.
