Linkages between Stewardship and Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) in Creation of a National Water Vision and Strategy

The Board of Directors of the American Water Resources Association has asked AWRA's Policy Technical Committee to examine how U.S. communities are incorporating Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) into their water management practices. The interpretations of "integrated" are many. In some locales they encompass water quantity, quality, and ecosystem issues. In other communities they encompass surface water and groundwater systems. Still other communities incorporate all of these components. From the planning stage to implementation, communities recognize the value of an integrated approach to water management. Benefits include shared resources, more effective policies and programs, and most importantly, positive economic and environmental outcomes. The Policy Technical Committee is developing a series of case studies, designed to answer the following questions: * What communities have used IWRM and at what scale? * Who were the lead institution and other key partners? * What did the IWRM efforts encompass; how holistic was it really? * What were the drivers for getting started and staying at the table? * What was the time period/evolution. Was it a one-time thing? * What are the total estimated costs and funding sources so far? * What are the estimated quantified benefits? The panel, comprised of Policy Technical Committee members, will hold a round-table discussion, sharing lessons learned thus far and sharing observations about each other's case studies. The moderator will help identify emerging themes and lead a discussion of their relevance in creation of a national water vision and strategy.

Panelists

William Hansen, National Park Service, Fort Collins, CO
William B. Uihlein, US Fish and Wildlife Service Southeast Region, Atlanta, GA
Chris Goudreau, N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, Marion, NC

This panel discussion is an attempt to fill a gap between scientific results and application in the area of ecological flows. Panelists representing federal, state, and non-profit conservation organizations will provide perspectives on the need for improved understanding of the relation between streamflow and ecology, with reference to environmental policy and land management. Discussion will focus on successes and challenges in applying ecological flow science to policy and natural resource decisions. The panel will follow three technical sessions on Ecohydrology and provide an opportunity for a more general discussion and synthesis. Feedback from this discussion may help shape future science directions.


Environmental Flows for Policy and Planning : Perspectives from The Nature Conservancy on 9 US Case Studies - Kristen Blann, The Nature Conservancy, Cushing, MN (co-authors: E.Kendy)

I will be a panelist in the discussion session on Ecological Flows being organized by Rodney Knight of the USGS, presenting TNCs perspective on needs, gaps, challenges, and lessons learned from state and basin-scale efforts to develop and implement regional environmental flow criteria in which we have been involved. Globally, flow alteration due to water use, landscape and drainage modification, and/or climate change is among the most serious threats to freshwater ecosystems. In the United States, recent advances in regional environmental flow policy and management have been facilitated by the Ecological Limits of Hydrologic Alteration (ELOHA), a flexible risk-based framework for determining environmental flows that uses existing hydrologic and biological data to associate ecological goals with allowable flow alteration, and accounts for scientific uncertainty by associating appropriate policy actions with different levels of ecological risk. This presentation will present a broad range of approaches and lessons learned from six states and three interstate river basins where regionalized environmental flow criteria have been effectively developed and applied to water resource planning, water withdrawal permitting, and/or multi-dam re-operation. Case studies demonstrate the feasibility of integrating science-based environmental flow needs into regional water management in the absence of site-specific assessments. Major components of ELOHA include a hydrologic foundation of reference streamflow data, classification of natural river types, flow-ecology relationships associated with each river type, and river condition goals. Decision support systems greatly facilitate the integration of environmental flow standards into state water allocation programs and regional water resource planning. Approaches have varied depending on water management challenges, existing capacity, science, and regulatory context, what policy makers wanted, and what stakeholders were willing to accept.
