    The Recovery Program wants to engage stakeholders in discussions concerning an endangered fish recovery management plan for the White River basin. This approach has been used by the Recovery Program in other basins to ensure that current and future water needs are met for people and endangered fish. The White River management plan will:

    • identify existing and some level of future water depletions;

    • develop current hydrology and projected depletions to identify the effects of past and future water development on endangered fish habitat;

    • identify the role of the White River in recovery of endangered fish;

    • identify flow recommendations for endangered fish habitat in the White River; and

    • identify a broad range of recovery actions to be carried out by the Recovery Program to support a recovered endangered fish population in the White River .
