Ecological Benefits Assessments

California Department of Water Resources

The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) has committed to enhancing ecological function within the Central Valley flood system as part of a recently adopted Integrated Water Management plan. Their comprehensive Conservation Strategy report lays out specific ecological objectives, including restoring ecological processes, eliminating stressors, improving target habitats and benefitting target species. To help DWR plan projects that best meet these criteria, we developed a set of ecological modeling tools which quantify benefits to target species and ecosystems.
