Help AW Define Rec Flows in the Rio Grande Basin

Ever paddled the Rio Grande or Conejos rivers in CO? We need your help to define recreation flows today!

American Whitewater needs your help to define streamflows that support the full range of recreational boating opportunities on the Rio Grande and Conejos Rivers in Southern Colorado. Information collected by this study will be used to assess river-dependent recreation as part of a joint stream management planning effort between American Whitewater and the Rio Grande Headwaters Restoration Project.

Once completed, the Stream Management Plan will be used to inform projects to restore and protect the watershed, and help enhance economies that rely on environmental and recreational water uses in the Rio Grande Basin.

We have developed this survey so individuals and outfitters can report how changes in stream flows affect recreation quality on each of our targeted river segments. Your input will help American Whitewater define the full range of flows necessary to support recreation experiences, from technical low water to challenging high water opportunities, and to promote recreation throughout the Stream Management Planning Process.

Please participate in our web-based survey TODAY!

I would like to help AW on this.

I got started on the survey but got bogged down in the detail and cancelled out. Any way to tweek this survey down to something like below ?

I have boated the box, racecourse and rio chama a ton the box goes best for me at 1500 to 2000 have boated it at 800, racecourse best for me around 1500 have boated it around 500, Rio Chama best for me around 1500 have boated it at 500.

Thanks for replying here okieboater. This survey is actually only for sections of the Rio Grande in CO, meaning the Taos Box, Racecourse, and Chama are not part of the study. I'm going to change the segment names in there so it's not as confusing with the "box canyon" section near Creede, CO.
