Stream Management Plans 101

Are you interested in learning whether a Stream Management Plan is a good fit for your community?

In this video, River Network and the Colorado Water Conservation Board present on the basics of Stream Management Planning (SMP). SMPs are created when stakeholders convene to evaluate the biological, hydrological, geomorphological, and other ecological conditions of their local river to identify flow needs to support environmental and recreational water uses. SMPs are voluntary and customizable activities that Basins throughout the state are welcome to undertake and can be supported by funding from the Colorado Water Conservation Board's Colorado Water Plan grants and local matching sources.
