This Flows and Recreation Guide is intended to facilitate decision-making to define flows for recreation on regulated rivers. It provides a framework and methodologies for assessing flows for recreational use. Ideally, it will be used to enhance the quality of study requests and plans, as well as the implementation of studies and resolution of disputes.
Produced in collaboration with the National Park Service. Hard copies of the Flows and Recreation Guide are available upon request.
This guide builds upon Instream Flows for Recreation: A Handbook on Concepts and Research Methods, published in 1993.
