Keystone Initiative: Regional Instream Flow Objectives and Water Policy

Establishing ‘public trust’ streamflows to sustain salmonids throughout their freshwater life cycles.

Gradually diminishing streamflows in the spring are the natural stressful condition salmon and steelhead encounter in the South Fork Eel River annually. But with each passing decade, low-flows are becoming more severe and occurring earlier, caused by legal and unauthorized diversions. Although individual diversions (legal and otherwise) generally are small, the cumulative total diversion within many South Fork Eel River tributaries is becoming significantly high.
