Abstract : This publication is one of a series of similar documents that provides a survey of State prerogatives and programs that may be used to protect the instream uses of water. Most of the opportunities for protecting instream flows are related to fish and wildlife habitat, although many other instream uses are considered, including hydroelectric power production, recreation, navigation, downstream delivery, and waste load assimilation. These documents illustrate methods to protect instream uses within the context of existing laws and regulations.
