When large watershed areas are being studied and continuously monitored, it is desirable to create a database management system (DBMS) that provides the necessary capability to build and maintain a database and is fairly easy to use. This paper describes a DBMS which was developed to manage large amounts of watershed data for use in MULTSED, a water and sediment yield model developed by Colorado State University. The DBMS was developed using Microrim's R:base 4000 and MS DOS.
