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. The primary purpose of this series of documents is to point out the opportunities in instream flow management that currently exist under State law, so that planners and managers can anticipate development, plan appropriate programs, and evaluate the costs and benefits of certain courses of action. In addition, the reports are brief histories of the level of success of various State programs.
