Fish Habitat Flows and Water Rights Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preperation

Document Description
NOTE: Review per lead The Water Agency would manage water supply releases from Lake Mendocino and Lake Sonoma to provide instream flows in the Russian River and Dry Creek that would improve habitat for listed salmonids. The proposed Fish Flow Project requires approval by the SWRCB of Water Agency petitions to modify the Water Agency's existing water-right permits. In addition to the water-right modifications related to changing the minimum instream flow requirements to improve habitat for fish, the Water Agency also will file petitions with the SWRCB to update the Water Agency's water-right permits to reflect current conditions. The Water Agency will implement the proposed Fish Flow Project if the water-right modifications are made by the SWRCB.
