South-central Minnesota's landscape consists mainly of a flat agricultural fields with numerous small depressions. Surface tile inlets are used to remove water from these depressions. Very little is known about the impact of surface tile inlets on the quantity and the quality of water leaving agricultural land. The Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) is used to model the flow to surface tile inlets. The accuracy of the predicted values is compared to those observed for four storm events. The predicted non-calibrated runoff depths were reasonable.
