Background: In 2007, the Public Interest Energy Research Program (PIER) of the California Energy Commission (CEC) established the Instream Flow Assessment Program (IFAP) through the Center for Aquatic Biology and Aquaculture of the University of California, Davis (UCD), to conduct research studies that indentify and reduce adverse impacts on aquatic species and habitats from instream flow variations caused by the operation of California hydropower facilities. In 2008, the first request for research proposals was announced and three proposals were awarded funding from the PIER Program of the CEC through the UCD-CEC IFAP. In 2009, proposals were informally requested and one additional proposal was awarded funding.  Research projects have been ongoing with all projects ending in December 2010. The IFAP Program Management Team is organizing this Workshop to disseminate the results of the funded research projects to all interested parties.
