Project Overview

Through a multi-step process, an interdisciplinary team of experts analyzed historical flow records and examining the importance of natural flow variability to the ecology and geomorphology of the Wami River sub-Basin, as well as quantifying the dependence of riparian human communities on aquatic ecosytems. This information was then used for making management recommendations for minimum, maintenance, and high flows of the Wami River downstream from water withdrawals and d...

Through a multi-step process, an interdisciplinary team of experts analyzed historical flow records and examining the importance of natural flow variability to the ecology and geomorphology of the Wami River sub-Basin, as well as quantifying the dependence of riparian human communities on aquatic ecosytems. This information was then used for making management recommendations for minimum, maintenance, and high flows of the Wami River downstream from water withdrawals and diversions.

Project Results

This project aims to provide the Wami-Ruvu Basin Water Office with the information and tools necessary for managing the flow of the Wami River today and in the future.
