First Report of the National Academy of Science- As defined in the Edwards Aquifer Habitat Conservation Plan, the Edwards Aquifer Authority is in contract with the National Academy of Science to act as an independent Science Review Panel (SRP). The purpose of the SRP is to provide the EAHCP Program Manager, as well as the Implementing, Science and Stakeholder Committees, scientific advice on issues related to the Adaptive Management Process.
“Review of the Edwards Aquifer Habitat Conservation Plan: Report 1” is the first product of this three-phase effort. The first effort focused on a review of the hydrologic and ecological models, water quality and biological monitoring, and applied research. Report 1 finds that overall, the EAA and the other Permittees are doing an excellent job in implementing many aspects of a complex habitat conservation plan, and that addressing several overarching scientific and modeling issues would further strengthen the plan.
On our website you can find:
- The Pre-publication version of the “Review of the Edwards Aquifer Habitat Conservation Plan: Report 1”
- The summary of Report 1, as provided by the National Academy of Science - “Report in Brief”
- The Implementing Committee’s Process and Timeline for review of the recommendations
- Danny Reible's Presentation given to the Implementing Committee at their March 19th Meeting
