Endangered Species

Volume 7 Number 4 July/August 2008

The Endangered Species Act (ESA) is increasingly forcing water managers to maintain a quantity and quality of water suitable for certain species and their habitats. This raises a number of challenges, not the least of which is determining how much water a species or habitat actually needs. In many situations, conflicts between ESA and other laws means that the loss of some species or habitat is unavoidable, but ESA has provisions for that too, such as restoring habitat or creating it elsewhere. ESA’s reach has extended far beyond species, however, in being a catalyst for developing water management plans for a wide variety of stakeholders, as illustrated in these feature articles.
