The USDA Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) Hillslope model was tested with data taken under traveling
lateral irrigation in Southern Idaho. The main parameter affecting infiltration and runoff was the effective hydraulic
conductivity. The model was found to predict average runoff and soil loss reasonably well for small slope areas
(<40m) and can be used to analyze for potential runoff problems on steep critical areas within a larger field.
