Description: 

What does increasing drought mean for the Northwest streams that provide critical habitat for our region’s fish and wildlife? As the climate changes, which streams will continue to flow year-round and which will dry up? Natural resource managers use information about streamflow permanence, or the extent to which streams maintain flowing surface water, to make decisions about managing streams and the fish and wildlife that depend on them.
