Summary

Projected water deficits mean that land and water managers must be proactive in their management of rivers and shallow aquifers, if they want to maintain the ecosystems dependent upon them. To do this, managers and decision makers need easy access to the best techniques available for determining how much water ecosystems need. This project will result in a Desert LCC-wide database of environmental flow needs and responses (environmental water demands) to help water and land managers make management decisions. This project will identify critical data gaps in flow need and flow response data in the Desert LCC (especially related to baseflow dependent streams) and result in a user-friendly, one-stop-shop for managers and researchers on [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this project is to: 1. Develop a tool that will enable more resilient and effective management of riparian and aquatic ecosystems. 2. Understand the critical data gaps in flow need and flow response data in the Desert LCC (especially related to base flow dependent streams); 3. Develop a user-friendly, one-stop-shop for managers and researchers on existing data on flow needs and responses in the Desert LCC; and 4. Provide recommendations for next steps to create a guidebook that can be used by managers to evaluate and implement environmental flow methodologies.
