Finding Solutions through Science
The Russian River Coho Water Resources Partnership is committed to finding solutions that balance the needs of water users and fish. Too often there is a misconception that the needs of agriculture and fish are at odds, when in fact both of these vital resources can be balanced for mutual benefit.
To meet the needs of landowners, fish, and other natural resources, the Partnership employs a science-based approach to develop streamflow and water use management plans for each watershed. Fisheries scientists and hydrologists are using
stream hydrology science,
streamflow data, and
coho salmon monitoring
data to correlate coho survival with stream flow and habitat conditions. Using the gathered data, GIS cumulative impact models are created to help develop management objectives that ensure adequate protections for fisheries.
With a sound scientific foundation, the Partnership, landowners, and water users can identify solutions that improve streamflows and water reliability.
