Rio Grande Basin Initiative

2003-04 Deliverables

Task 6 Extension
Principal Investigator(s): Neil Wilkins

  1. Produce a searchable bibliography of Threatened and Endangered Species in the Rio Grande Basin for distribution by CD and availability over the internet.
  2. Produce a summary report of the spatial correlations of T&E species and irrigation systems in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, accompanied by a Spanish language version.
  3. Create a preliminary simulation model for predicting changes in water availability for fish & wildlife resources under several irrigation management scenarios - fully documented in both English and Spanish.
  4. Develop prelimenary guidelines for selected species for considerations to minimize negative impacts on threatened and endangered species in relation to irrigation practices and infrastructure improvements.

Note: This is an allocation for 02-03 but it is expected that the funds will be carried over into 03-04, due to the allocation being made late in the RGBI fiscal year.
