Abstract: Management strategies for baseflow augmentation fall into the following categories: (1) livestock management, (2) upland vegetation management, (3) riparian vegetation management, (4) upland runoff detention and retention, and (5) the use of instream structures. The benefits of a watershed management strategy focused on baseflow augmentation are the following: (1) increased summer flows, (2) healthier riparian areas, (3) increased channel and bank stability, (4) decreased erosion and sediment transport, (5) improved water quality, and (6) enhanced fish and wildlife habitat.
