The focus of this category is the use of water for irrigating farms. Withdrawals from waterways have the potential to impact salmonid and other aquatic species habitat, primarily by reducing in-stream flows. Impacts can be minimized by selecting alternative water sources that do not reduce in-stream flows critical for salmon habitat and popula- tions and by reducing water use on such stream reaches. Water conservation methods that change the rate and volume of withdrawal are also beneficial and include drought- tolerant crops, efficient irrigation systems27 and the reduction of irrigated areas.
