The Science of Instream Flows: A Review of the Texas Instream Flow Program
Texas Senate Bill 2 (2001) instructed three state agencies—the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB), the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ)—to develop a state program for instream flows to support a “sound ecological environment” on priority rivers by the end of 2010. In response, the agencies drafted a proposed instream flow program that is described in two documents: the Programmatic Work Plan (PWP; TPWD, TCEQ, and TWDB, 2002) and Technical Overview Document (TOD; TPWD, TCEQ, and TWDB, 2003). The PWP outlines the programmatic elements of the instream flow initiative, and the TOD details scientific and engineering methodologies for data collection and analysis. The agencies arranged for the National Research Council (NRC) to evaluate the Texas instream flow program, including the PWP and the methodologies in the TOD and other supporting documents.
