The North Carolina General Assembly enacted legislation in 2010 directing the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to develop hydrologic models for each river basin in N.C. An important part of this bill requires the department to determine the flows needed to maintain ecological integrity in surface waters. The bill further authorized the creation of a Science Advisory Board to assist the department in assessing these ecological flows. The members and alternates of the board all have a strong background in aquatic ecology and represent a diversity of water use interests. The board has a charter that will help guide them through this process.
Meetings of the Ecological Flows Science Advisory Board are open to the public.
Persons interested in receiving meeting announcements and materials distributed prior to meetings can register here Register.
