The long-term estimation of fresh water inflow to coastal bays is important for understanding and managing estuarine coastal ecosystems. The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) has estimated the total fresh water inflow to bays in Texas using the TxRR (Texas Rainfall-Runoff) model, which is a simple rainfall-runoff relation model. Recently, TWDB requested to develop and apply the SWAT model using up-to-date technologies for estimating inflow to the bays.
