Managing Water for People and Fish, Now and in a Changing Climate

New policies are needed to reprioritize allocation of water resources to better protect
aquatic ecosystems, accommodate the functional realities of our hydrologic system, encourage conservation and efficient use of water, and promote water management practices that increase water supplies without further damaging our already stressed aquatic ecosystems.
