This module discusses an approach for defining and restoring the streamflow conditions that sustain the biological diversity — native riverine species, aquatic and riparian communities, and natural ecosystem functions — of rivers. This approach is applicable when working with dam operators or water managers to change the way water is being stored, released, or diverted for human use. It is also useful in watershed restoration projects wherein various best management practices or other measures are being used to restore natural watershed functions, including hydrologic regimes.
