River Management

Managing rivers is a multidisciplinary activity that requires not only knowledge of biotic and abiotic resources in and adjacent to the system, but also an understanding of local economic and societal drivers. Successful river management typically requires removing or minimizing sources of stress such as point and nonpoint source pollution, dredging, and other physical modifications, adjacent land use changes, or excessive local water use. Protective modifications such as wildlife plantings, erosion control, or altering water removal/release plans are useful for river management.
