Technical Report

CEFF Technical Report

Over the last 3 years, the California Environmental Flows Framework (CEFF) has been developed by a technical subcommittee comprised of scientists from academia, agencies, research organizations, and non-governmental organizations.

The draft Technical Report is available for download below.  Associated appendices for reference are also below.  

The public comment period of the draft report is now closed.  A final version 1.0 of the Technical Report will be posted here in Fall 2021.


CEFF Implementation Workplan

An implementation workplan was developed to identify additional efforts necessary to support statewide implementation of the Framework, including improvements in technical tools, tracking and standardizing the documentation of case studies, and establishing mechanisms for ongoing data and information sharing.

The Technical Team is soliciting feedback on the workplan and to evaluate key priorities of the Environmental Flows Workgroup - which will aid in pursuing future funding opportunities. Please provide feedback here.
