California Water Plan Update 2013
As part of the California Water Plan Update 2013, the water sustainability indicators framework project developed indicators to measure progress toward meeting stakeholder and Water Plan goals and objectives. These indicators capture many aspects of the social, economic, and natural systems that are influenced by water use and management.
SAWPA has been working with the California Water Plan funded team at UC Davis and Council for Watershed Health to develop indicators that measure progress toward regional goals.
Previous Regional Assessments
The Feather River Basin Report Card provides a description of conditions relative to our expectations and goals for the Basin. It is a science-based solution to a social and management need. The Report Card measures aspects of the whole integrated system relative to stakeholder goals. It reports on the system using regionally-important and science-based indicators. Because the indicators are assessed using transparent reference points, they provide a measurement of health that can be assessed in future report cards.
Napa County Planning, Napa County RCD, UC Davis, and Sonoma Ecology Center developed this summary of watershed conditions using the California Watershed Assessment Framework. Indicators for ecological, social, and economic condition were analyzed at the sub-watershed and watershed scales.
