Featured SRF Conference Workshop: Assessing Ecological Risks from Streamflow Diversions in Coastal California Streams
The 2020 SRF Conference will feature a workshop called Assessing Ecological Risks from Streamflow Diversions in Coastal California Streams, coordinated by Bill Trush, River Institute, Humboldt State University.
Workshop participants will be shown how to quantitatively link basic stream hydraulics and stream ecosystem processes, then apply these linkages to practically and quantitatively evaluate ecological risks from cumulative streamflow diversions. This workshop will review field techniques for measuring riffle crests, show how basic stream channel hydraulics can be estimated from RCT-Q rating curves, calibrate an RCT-Q rating curve from the realtime USGS gaging website, then demonstrate its usefulness as a simple tool for prescribing instream diversions. The workshop will end with a discussion of the the future of top-down versus bottom-up strategies for instream flow diversion policies in California.
