    A 76 ha hardwood plantation at Trice Research Forest near Sumter, SC is being usedto study forest hydrology on an operational scale. The overall objective of this project is to develop tools to enable forest managers to assess and manage sustainable short rotation woody crop production systems. This paper reports on the use of the water management model, WATRCOM, as a tool for assessing and managing hydrology and water use in these plantations. Four drainage catchments are being monitored for surface and subsurface movement of water and nutrients. The water management model, WATRCOM, is being tested and evaluated on these catchments. Two years of field data are compared to model simulations. Future model development and application to these sites are also discussed.
