EPA manages an active user community that offers support and perspective on BASINS, HSPF, HSPEXP+, and other associated software. To become a member of that community, please subscribe to the listserv following the instructions on EPA BASINS page.
To pursue a more demanding level of support than listserv interactions can provide, please refer to our Premium Support option.
Software Packages Grouped by Client/Agency:
Software available from the
Applications page at the
Water Resources Division (WRD) of the
User's Manual (in Windows Help format)
GenScn (see also our GenScn page)
ANNIE A Character-based interactive program designed to help
users store, retrieve, list, plot, check, and update spatial,
parametric, and time-series data for hydrologic models and
analyses. Data are stored in a direct access file called a
Watershed Data Management (WDM) file.
HSPEXP (HSPEXP is no longer supported by USGS, please refer to HSPEXP+ linked above.)
IOWDM A character-based program designed to reformat data to and from a WDM file.
SWSTAT Software for statistically analyzing time-series data.
The time-series data are read from a Watershed Data Management
(WDM) file. The computed statistics and (or) time series can be
written back to the WDM file or to a text file.

- SARA Time Series Utility SARA Time Series Utility supports analysis and management of time-varying environmental data including listing, graphing, computing statistics, computing meteorological data and saving in a WDM or text file.
- SARA Load Reduction Tool The SARA Load Reduction Tool was developed to allow users to determine the constituent load reductions needed to reach water quality standards in model reaches within a watershed through the application of BMPs.
