What's New at CEMAR

November, 2014
Matt Deitch, CEMAR's hydrologist, was honored at the annual CHEER (Coastal Habitat Education and Environmental Restoration) Awards Dinner held in Gilroy on Saturday, November 1. Matt received a Congressional resolution from the office of Zoe Lofgren for his work in Little Arthur Creek, tributary to Uvas Creek in Santa Clara County. His research will result in ten houses along important steelhead habitat in Little Arthur Creek storing water in winter for use in summer, rather than diverting from the channel or shallow wells immediately beside it. CEMAR will also conduct post-implementation studies to assess if the change in management practices result in improved summer base flow.

July, 2014
CEMAR's Executive Director Andrew Gunther gave the Keynote Address, Sustaining our Ecological Infrastructure in a Changing World, at the annual meeting of the Society for Conservation GIS in Monterey.

The Russian River Coho Water Resources Partnership has been awarded a $500,000 National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) grant to continue its streamflow restoration work in five key tributaries of the Russian River. To date, NFWF has invested over $3.2 million in the Partnership’s work. CEMAR serves as the official grantee for NFWF on behalf of the partnership. The Sonoma County Water Agency has provided a significant amount of additional support through fisheries research and monitoring activities related to management of Russian River water resources.

April, 2014
CEMAR's Executive Director Andrew Gunther led a workshop entitled Giving Effective Presentations for staff at the Bay Conservation and Development Commission. If you are interested in having Dr. Gunther conduct this workshop for your organization please contact CEMAR.

March, 2014
CEMAR received a donor-directed grant of $10,000 from The Orvis Company. The restricted gift is to be used to fund the Russian River Coho Water Resources Partnership, a project focused on improving streamflow and coho salmon recovery in five key tributaries of the Russian River.

January, 2014
CEMAR recently completed a study of selected portions of the Napa River watershed for potential flow enhancement projects. The project, funded by the Dean Witter Foundation, found that water storage projects could be developed in important Napa River tributaries and portions of the mainstem river that have the potential to improve and expand steelhead habitat. Questions or comments about the report should be addressed to Gordon Becker or Matthew Deitch.
