 Alliance For The Great Lakes
The Lake Michigan Tributary Monitoring Project was designed to measure discharge and pollutant concentrations at eleven tributaries to Lake Michigan: the Menominee, Fox, Sheboygan, and Milwaukee rivers in Wisconsin; the Grand Calumet River in Indiana; and the St. Joseph, Kalamazoo, Grand, Muskegon, Pere Marquette, and Manistique rivers in Michigan.
Each of the eleven tributary monitoring stations was installed near the river mouth close to Lake Michigan.
These known loads will be used to estimate pollutant loads from the tributaries flowing into the lake that were not monitored so that the total pollutant loads entering Lake Michigan from all tributaries can be estimated for use in the Lake Michigan Mass Balance Study.

For convenience in conceptualizing the stream system, the tributary area contributing runoff to the branches is divided into subareas on the basis of the source of the rainfall data used to estimate the unit-area runoff intensities stored in the DTSF.
The Tributary Area Block is primarily designed to read time series of unit-area runoff computed in the Hydrologic Simulation Program Fortran, HSPF, (Johanson and others, 1984) as tributary inflow to a stream system simulated with FEQ; however, the source of the unit-area runoff data in the DTSF is not important for FEQ application.
