Collaborative Water Management Guidebook

The Nature Conservancy, Salmonid Restoration Federation, and Alford Environmental have produced a Collaborative Water Management Guide to Enhancing Streamflow and Water Supply Reliability in California’s Rural Watersheds and Communities. 

This guidebook outlines the framework for collaborative water management planning that is designed for restoration practitioners, project proponents, and stakeholders interested in sustainably managing limited water resources. Topics include water availability and flow data analysis, communication strategies, water transactions and community-based prioritization efforts. This guide is informed by successful flow enhancement case studies and initiatives like the California Environmental Flow Framework and the Salmon Habitat and Restoration Prioritization process. The goal of the guidebook is to amplify our collective streamflow enhancement efforts in watersheds experiencing extended dry seasons and insufficient water supplies.

Small Community Drought Relief Program

The purpose of the program is to provide immediate and near-term financial and technical support to help small communities survive this and future droughts. The Department of Water Resources will award fund on a first come first serve basis until funds are exhausted or the end of December 2023. Eligible applicants include nonprofits, public agencies, and tribal governments in Caliornia. Learn more here.
