Abstract : The report describes a simulation model constructed to enable planners to evaluate quickly the damaging impact of urbanization (and changing land uses) on the run-off characteristics of a river basin. The model area involves a small part of the Charles River Basin, Massachusetts. It also deals with visual consequences of urbanization upon waterways which flow through the developing area. (Author)
