Salmon and Steelhead Coalition

Using science to influence policy

Project Goal:

Reform state water policy, advance streamflow science, and address resource management challenges using the South Fork Eel River as a focal area to identify public trust instream flows for coho salmon and steelhead across their freshwater lifecycle, while increasing water supply reliability for people.

Recent Accomplishments

  • Completed the first-phase of establishing a scientific approach for identifying regional flow objectives;
  • Collaborated with Coalition partners to develop and present our science and policy approach to the Regional and State Water Boards.

What We Will Achieve in 2016-17:

  • Continue validation of regional flow criteria and objectives through field streamflow assessments and water management analyses;
  • Monitor summer low-flow conditions and advocate for watershed protection and enforcement.
