For example, several studies for Western and Southwestern states have estimated the value of increasing streamflow for fishing and other recreational uses from $16 to $86 per acrefoot, and for the economic value of improved streamflows to enhance salmon populations in northern California from $33 to $53 per acre-foot (Colby, 1989).
Zuni farmers who still practice traditional agriculture use simple, low-investment structures that appear to mitigate destructive arroyo cutting during both small and large streamflows.
For example, in 1997, although suitable streamflows for migration were present from late December through Janu ary, five lamprey were observed in the ladder during this time.
Streamflows, lake levels, and groundwater levels are lowered during drought, causing damage to recreation, fisheries, wildlife, and watershed resources.
Low demand, lots of rain and high streamflows explain why our reservoirs are full at a time when they would ordinarily be down as much as 30 percent.
The public is strongly advised to be vigilant and desist from entering the eight (8) kilometer-radius danger zone, and to be additionally vigilant against pyroclastic density currents, lahars and sediment-laden streamflows along channels draining the edifice,' it said.
