Read and write Watershed Data Management (WDM) files
The wdmtoolbox is a Python script and library to read/write/manage Watershed Data Management (WDM) files used for time-series in hydrology and hydrological simulation. WDM files are used in the Hydrological Simulation Program - FORTRAN (HSPF) and the Better Assessment of Science Integrating point and Non-point Sources (BASINS). HSPF is a part of the BASINS system.

Aqua Terra, BASINS download - (http://ftp.hspf.com/)
If these requirements are not locally available, ‘pip’ or ‘easy_install’ will attempt to download and install.
- pandas - on Windows this is part of the Python(x,y) distribution (http://code.google.com/p/pythonxy/) or Anaconda (https://store.continuum.io/cshop/anaconda/)
- baker - command line parser
- python-dateutil - used for parsing date/time strings
- tstoolbox - a command line utility companion to wdmtoolbox.
If you use the source distribution you have to have a FORTRAN compiler installed and configured for your environment.
Installation for the Impatient
Compile From Source
Aside from using pre-compiled binaries on Windows, the following command needs gcc, gfortran, and probably want the Python science stack already installed.
pip install wdmtoolbox
