NFWF Russian River Keystone Initiative

Update December 2015



The Russian River Coho Water Resources Partnership is dedicated to providing long-term water reliability solutions in the Russian River watershed for communities and the environment.

In response to the precipitous decline of coho salmon in the Russian River watershed, the Russian River Coho Water Resources Partnership (Partnership) formed in 2009 to develop a systematic approach to improve streamflow and water supply reliability in five Russian River tributaries: Dutch Bill Creek, Grape Creek, Green Valley Creek, Mark West Creek, and Mill Creek. The Partnership is generously funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation with additional support from the Sonoma County Water Agency.

The five-member Partnership is focusing initially on five key watersheds because they have the most potential for stream flow enhancement and recovery of the coho salmon population. To assist landowners and water users the Partnership is using the best available science to develop workable solutions that reduce the impact of dry season water diversions from our streams.   More about the Partnership...
