The more accurate estimation of the pollutant loadings from nonpoint source is needed to evaluate water quality of water resources such as river and reservoir. Therefore this study was performed to grasp the scale and characteristics of pollutant. In this study, STORM model was applied to I-cheon district to estimate runoff and pollutant loading of SS, BOD, T-N and $PO_4-P$. The results estimated by STORM model were fitted well to surveyed water quality in flow, SS and BOD. The annual loadings were estimated to be 36,463 kg/$km^3$/yr of SS, 8,090 kg/$km^3$/yr of BOD, 4,435 kg/$km^3$/yr of T-N and 358 kg/$km^3$/yr of $PO_4-P$. It was also found that the monthly pollutant loadings of SS, BOD, $PO_4-P$ were greatest in May and T-N in April.
