Automated Geospatial Watershed Assessment Tool (AGWA)
The Automated Geospatial Watershed Assessment (AGWA) tool is a GIS-based multipurpose hydrologic analysis system for use by watershed, water resource, land use, and biological resource managers and scientists in performing watershed- and basin-scale studies. It uses readily available spatial data sets to parameterize and run two widely used watershed runoff and erosion models: the Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) and KINematic Runoff and EROSion (KINEROS2) hydrologic models. AGWA is designed to support hydrologic modeling and watershed assessments at multiple spatial and temporal scales.

Adapting innovative stormwater management techniques to the water-limited West. Includes section on water rights law.
This report details the Community-Based Public-Private Partnership (CBP3): a platform for implementing affordable, integrated green stormwater infrastructure.
With annual rainfall averaging 7 inches, and the most common event dropping .2 inches, Phoenix's approach to green infrastructure differs [!] from Seattle's. Given arid climate and poorly-drained soil, their goals emphasize preservation of native tree species, little consideration of rain barrels, cisterns, green roofs.
