The Uses of the Hydrological Simulation Program FORTRAN at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency


Chuck Regan
Minnesota Pollution Control Agency

November 13, 2020


The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) uses the Hydrological Simulation Program FORTRAN (HSPF) to carry out its business needs.  These needs include the development of Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) allocation studies and the setting of pollutant effluent limits for point sources.  These activities are required by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.  The MPCA first used HSPF in the Minnesota River Basin but has now applied HSPF statewide.  The history of HSPF at the MPCA and how the MPCA leverages its HSPF applications will be discussed.
