The mission of the California Environmental Flows Workgroup is to advance the science of ecological flows assessment and its application for supporting management decisions aimed at balancing natural resource needs with consumptive water uses to establish environmental flows.

The mission will be accomplished by providing a forum for coordination and technical exchanges among government agencies, academic institutions, tribes, and non-governmental organizations in California focused on understanding environmental flow needs and establishing ecological flow criteria grounded in science.

The workgroup will strive to improve agency and public access to ecological and environmental flow data, information and tools related to ecological flow assessments, and to provide a common vision for use of tools and science-based information to support sound decision making.

The Workgroup is based on a spirit of collaboration, open exchange of ideas, and respectful dialogue. Members should come to the groups with this philosophy and the intent to advance the science and application of ecological flows throughout the state.  Meetings will be open, informal and consensus driven.
