Summary

Water management and conservation efforts can benefit from scientifically-derived guidelines for the permitting of water withdrawals that maintain the ecological health in streams while simultaneously maximizing water availability for industry, agriculture, drinking water, and waste treatment. Data contained within this data release builds upon the previous framework developed by Knight and others (2008, 2012, 2014, 2016) that established flow-ecology relationships in the Blue Ridge, Ridge and Valley, Interior Plateau, and Cumberland Plateau ecoregions within the Tennessee and Cumberland River basins. Specifically, Knight and others (2014) established ecological limit functions (ELF) that defined upper bounds responses of fish species [...]
