Technical Abstract: The Savoy Experimental Watershed (SEW) is a University of Arkansas (UofA) property of approximately 1250 hectares (Ha) that borders the Illinois River in western Washington and southern Benton Counties, Northwest Arkansas. The SEW is the site of an integrated research effort between the UofA, Arkansas Department of Pollution Control and Ecology (ADPCE), Agricultural Research Service (ARS) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to develop a long term, interdisciplinary field laboratory to quantitatively evaluate processes, controls, and hydrologic and nutrient-flux budgets in the surface-water, soil, and shallow ground-water environments.
