Based on a recent model calibration effort, the soil groups and precipitation gages for Clark County in WWHM3 have changed. The new soil groups and precipitation data for Clark County can be accessed within WWHM3 when “Clark 2010” is selected in the “Map Information” screen.
WWHM users can still access the old (default) soil groups and precipitation gage data for the county by selecting “Clark” in the “Map Information” screen. However, users must check with Clark County for instructions on which county map is acceptable for their project in the county.
