Riparian zones are known to function as buffers, reducing non-point source pollution from agricultural land to streams. A key component of the control and management of riparian buffer zone is the modeling of water quality and quantity using a process-based ecohydrological model Soil and Water Integrated Model (SWIM) developed for integrated modeling of interrelated hydrological processes, vegetation dynamics and nutrient cycling at the riparian buffer zone in the catchment. In conjunction with less complex statistical model Riparian Nutrient Attenuation Model (RNAM), which uses three physical properties of the riparian, including vegetation type, slope and width, to estimate the retention of total nitrogen (N) and total phosphorus (P) in the riparian buffer zone. In this paper assessment of selected water quality and quantity parameters were carried out. The results of analytical statistics clearly showed that significant correlations between streamflow and water quality parameters during wet and dry seasons.
