F7: Sustainable Rivers: How the Corps and The Nature Conservancy Are Partnering, Making Progress
The program — a partnership between the Corps and the Nature Conservancy — works with stakeholders to demonstrate that a strategic and science-based approach can deliver multiple benefits from Corps water infrastructure.
Much of SRP’s focus is on environmental flows, which are defined as the quantity, timing, and quality of water flows required to sustain ecosystems. SRP is the largest scale and most comprehensive program for implementing environmental flows at Corps reservoirs.
In this discussion, panelists describe the program, its approach and successes, as well as summarize the engagement in the program by the Corps’ National Hydropower Program.
