Description The Columbia River Basin provides numerous water-ecosystem services through its natural flow regime. Wildlife in the basin, including salmon, are evolutionarily adapted to changes in the seasonality of the river’s flow. The quality, quantity and timing of flow directly influence the productivity and resilience of salmon populations. Although salmon can adapt to some natural drought conditions, cumulative human impacts over the last century, including flow diversions for irrigation and...
