State Water Board Instream Flow Recommendations

Water Code section 85087, contained in the Delta Reform Act, requires the State Water Board to submit to the Legislature by December 31, 2010 a prioritized schedule and estimate of costs to complete instream flow studies for two categories of rivers and streams by two specific deadlines: (1) “high priority rivers and streams in the Delta watershed, not otherwise covered by section 85086, by 2012”; and (2) “all major rivers and streams outside the Sacramento River watershed by 2018".
