SSC Pacific and the University of Alabama developed a spreadsheet tool based on the calibration to perform the modeling in a simplified format for use by Navy facility managers. The researchers generated a spreadsheet for each of the three Navy regions Southwest, Mid-Atlantic, and Northwest where the calibration was performed to account for differences in model outcomes that were primarily a result of variations in regional rainfall effects. The report provides guidance on the use of the spreadsheet tool, with a particular focus on how to collect and enter key site characterization data from an onsite review of facility drainages. This includes identifying and measuring areas within 53 different source area categories for land use within areas that can be characterized as mostly residential, commercial, or industrial. Using the tool in other Navy regions should be based on how similar rainfall is in the area to the type of rainfall used in calibrating the tool for the three regions.
