What we do in our watersheds and how they react to a changing climate can have big impacts on the water volumes and quantities we see downstream. A significant body of research has been underway over the last 10 years trying to improve our understanding of cause and effect in our watersheds. Now is a good time to evaluate what that research has told us and to consider where do we need to go from here.
