Description

This report identifies a method to estimate an ecologically-based flow regime on the basis of reductions from natural flow or the per cent exceedance from natural flow. It also provides background information and a jurisdictional review of current environmental flow (instream flow needs) knowledge in North America and international rivers. The report was prepared in support of outcomes and goals identified in the provincial Water for Life strategy and action plan.
