Project: Integrated Water Strategies to Enhance Flows in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties

Description: A planning grant to Central Coast Salmon Enhancement (CCSE) for a cooperative project with the United States Forest Service, National Forest Foundation and Hick Law to assess, geographically identify, and prioritize water conservation and reduced consumptive use opportunities that promote the highest potential for instream flow contributions in five different watersheds in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. The study will assess a variety of acquisition and implementation project types that, in the aggregate, present a unique non-regulatory strategy to reduce surface and/or groundwater diversions and enhance flows for the long-term persistence of viable, self-sustaining, populations of anadromous steelhead.
