    For the (efficient) design and evaluation of integrated water management strategies a model is needed that covers the whole (regional) system, including plant-atmosphere interactions, soil water, groundwater and surface water. SIMGRO is a mechanistic distributed model with a (nearly) unified saturated-unsaturated flow description at its core. Innovative use is made of dynamic `metamodelling¿ techniques for the soil water and surface water. The implementation relies on `intelligent¿ data that are obtained by a series of computational experiments with comprehensive models. In this way an acceptable degree of accuracy is achieved at a relatively low computational cost. For the drainage of groundwater to surface water a new technique is used to combine analytical formulae with a numerical grid
