A Contingent Water Banking Program to Support Shortnose Sturgeon Migration in the Savannah River Basin during Drought Periods

This study presents a model to investigate the costs of augmenting streamflows in drought years to support shortnose sturgeon spawning and migration. We demonstrate how the model can estimate the acre foot water payment necessary under alternative drought scenarios to induce water users to participate in a contingent water banking program to meet sturgeon seasonal flow requirements.
