Within this study, a groundwater model for the town of Amherst, NY was developed. Visual Blue Bird (VBB) model was used for this purpose. Flow is unconfined in the research area. A set of maps that contain rivers, lakes and the county boundary and digital elevation model (DEM) were used for the placement of the surface water features. The main creeks modeled in this study are Tonawanda, Ransom, Ellicott, Got and Black Creek in the Town of Amherst. Effects of urbanization, conditions in pre-development and post-development stages were dealt with. Model Results show that the model is so sensitive on parameters such as hydraulic conductivity, porosity and recharge.
