Threat: Dams & Water Management/UseEdit


Changing water flow patterns from their natural range of variation either deliberately or as a result of other activities. Examples include dam construction, release of too little or cold water from dam operations, sediment control, change in salt regime, wetland filling for mosquito control, levees and dikes, surface water diversion, groundwater pumping, channelization, ditching, and artificial lakes.

This category focuses on the human activities that lead to either not enough water or too much water in the ecosystem in question. Note that homogenizing flows to a constant level may be outside the "natural range of variation." Dredging belongs in Shipping Lanes. (CMP)
