Two primary literature sources describe instream flow science, Instream Flows for Riverine Resource Stewardship (IFC, ) and Rivers for Life: Managing Water for People and Nature (Postel and Richter, ). These books are based on instream flow research and studies conducted on many rivers in North America and the rest of the world and reference hundreds.

Across North America, flow alterations and diversions have led to the depletion of stream flow-reliant ecosystems and ecosystem services. In western states and provinces, the law historically considered water left in the stream to be wasted.

Western state laws encouraged full appropriation of rivers and streams, primarily to satisfy the need to divert water to arid areas Cited by: 2. streams to protect and preserve these instream resources and uses.

o do this, we set flow levels in administrative rules; the specific stream flow levels are called “instream flows.” nce instream flow levels are established in a rule, they serve as a water right for the stream and the resources that depend on it.

River Science is a rapidly developing interdisciplinary field at the interface of the natural sciences, engineering and socio-political sciences. The book will inform academics, policy makers and society in general of the benefits of healthy functioning riverine systems, and will increase awareness of the wide range of ecosystem goods and.

The Texas Instream Flow Program was created by the Texas Legislature in to assess how much water rivers need to maintain a sound ecological environment.

The program is administered by three agencies: Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and Texas Water Development Board.

The meaning of the term “instream flows” has evolved over the years but usually describes the amount of water set aside in a stream or river to ensure downstream environmental, social and economic benefits are met (Instream Flow Issues & Recommendations, OCWP Supplemental Report, February ).

), a comprehensive summary of the scientific, legal, institutional, and public policy aspects of instream flows.

That international effort has inspired regional or watershed efforts, perhaps none more active than the Southern Instream Flow Network (; SIFN). Determining environmental flows can be a daunting task because fluvial systems are physically and biologically complex, and there can be difficult trade-offs between instream and out-of.

•All of the streams in the state used to go dry in late summer and there weren’t any fish. • The best way to get more instream flow is to irrigate more.

• Instream flow is a waste because all the water seeps into the ground. • Instream flow will just run down the creek to other states without getting used here. Flows of the Columbia River, although modified substantially during the twentieth century, still vary considerably between seasons and between years.

Lowest flows tend to occur during summer months when demand for irrigation water is at its highest and when water temperatures are greatest.

These periods of low flows, high demand, and high temperature.

The term “instream flow” is used to identify a specific stream flow (typically measured in cubic feet per second, or cfs) at specific locations for defined time periods.

Instream flows are usually defined as the stream flows needed to protect and preserve instream resources and values, such as fish, wildlife, water quality, aesthetics, and.

Instream water uses include hydroelectric power generation, outdoor recreation, transportation (navigation), water quality improvement, and in stream flows for environmental purposes.

This chapter focuses mainly on two instream uses namely hydropower and recreation, though instream flows for environmental maintenance are discussed at the end.Inenactment of the Instream Flow law expanded this concept to allow the State of Wyoming to hold a water right for instream (water that flows in a natural stream channel) fisheries purposes.

Thus, a new water right can be issued to allow water, when available, to remain in the stream channel and be protected for fisheries purposes.The Science of Instream Flows: A Review of the Texas Instream Flow Program Committee on Review of Methods for Establishing Instream Flows for Texas Rivers, National Research Council This free executive summary is provided by the National Academies as part of our mission to educate the world on issues of science, engineering, and health.
