Klamath Basin IFRMP Vision
The vision of the Klamath Basin IFRMP is to provide a unifying framework for planning the coordinated restoration and recovery of native fish species from the headwaters to the Pacific Ocean, while improving flows, water quality, habitat and ecosystem processes.
The IFRMP provides an answer to the basic question:
Given all that we know, which watershed restoration actions will provide the broadest possible benefits to functional watershed processes and native focal fish species, both within each sub-basin and throughout the Basin?
The primary outputs of the IFRMP planning process are summarized as follows:
- A list of priority restoration project concepts by subbasin
- Recommendations for closing important basin-wide gaps in monitoring
- Cost estimates for these restoration and monitoring priorities
- Recommendations for ongoing Plan implementation and adaptively updating above products.
These outputs were derived through a remarkably collaborative series of engagements by hundreds of basin participants 2016-2022.
Formally, these outputs and other Plan products are available from the links below:
The state of the science in river restoration ecology increasingly calls for more holistic approaches to restoration at the basin scale. Contemporary approaches seek to
