South Fork Eel Sproul Creek Flow Study

Setting instream flow objectives

Project Goal

Establish common and standardized procedures applicable throughout California’s coastal watersheds for identifying ‘instream flow objectives’ through 1) the development and application of regional criteria and 2) the development and adoption of standardized sitespecific flow study methodologies. Advocate for adoption of these approaches by state agencies (CDFW, RWB, SWRCB).

Recent Accomplishments

  • Established an agency Technical Working Group (TWG) to focus on a Sproul Creek instream flow study and water management approach;
  • Developed a Study Plan suitable for regional application in California’s coastal watersheds.

What We Will Achieve in 2016-17

  • Continue working with state and federal agencies on water rights and diversions policies for coastal watersheds;
  • Implement the Sproul Creek (South Fork Eel River) Instream Flow Study, demonstrating to agencies sound scientific water
    management approaches.
