EPAs Better Assessment Science Integrating Point and Nonpoint Sources (BASINS) is a
multipurpose environmental analysis system designed for use by regional, state, and local
agencies performing watershed and water quality-based studies. This system makes it possible to
quickly assess large amounts of data in a format that is easy to use and understand. BASINS
allows the user to assess water quality at selected stream sites or throughout an entire watershed.
This invaluable tool integrates environmental data, analytical tools, and modeling programs to
support development of cost-effective approaches to watershed management and environmental
