||This Program was developed pursuant to the Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014 (Proposition 1), which was approved by California voters in November 2014. It amended the California Water Code (CWC) to add among other articles, section 79733, authorizing the Legislature to appropriate up to $200,000,000 to WCB, for projects that result in enhanced stream flows. WCB's Guidelines for the Program were finalized in June 2015.
Enhanced stream flow is defined as a change in the amount, timing or quality of the water flowing down a stream, or a portion of a stream, to benefit fish and wildlife. Funding will be awarded to programs that provide support for anadromous fish; support for special status, threatened, endangered or at risk species; provide wildlife corridors;
provide resilience to climate change.
