Description    


Instream flow data was collected in seven locations on the Kuskokwim watershed (Doestock River, Buckstock River, upper Aniak River, Salmon River, Kipchuk River, Holitna River, and Stony River) for the purpose of preparing and submitting reservation of water applications.

Project Benefit    


The rivers of SW AK support some of North America’s most viable and productive salmon stocks. Salmon depend on sufficient quantities of water to meet their spawning, rearing, incubation, overwintering, and migration habitat requirements. This project will contribute to long-term habitat protection by acquiring the data necessary to legally reserving instream flows needed to conserve salmon habitat.
