July 12 Brown Bag – A Southern California Case Study on Setting Flow Targets

Second in a Series of 3 Brown Bag Seminars
Discussing Flow Targets and Ecology


Wednesday, July 12, 2017
12:00 – 1:00 p.m. PST

Park Tower Building
2nd Floor Conference Room
980 Ninth St., Sacramento, CA 95814


Eric Stein, Ph.D., Principal Scientist - Biology Dept., Southern California Coastal Water Research Project


Dr. Stein will  present work from Southern California involving development of regional flow targets to protect stream health using benthic (bottom-dwelling) macroinvertebrates as indicators. Stream flow targets were determined using the Ecological Limits of Hydrologic Alteration (ELOHA) framework. This method can be applied state-wide, including in the Bay-Delta watershed.

Coequal goals

The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)
