Abstract

As part of the Icicle Work Group (IWG), a diverse set of stakeholders have been working to identify collaborative solutions to water management in Icicle Creek. Water management decisions that are made today will have implications for decades to come. Given the large changes in climate and hydrology anticipated in the coming decades, such plans will need to account for the effects of climate change if they are going to be robust.

The purpose of this project is to leverage existing hydrologic change datasets to estimate future changes in streamflow in Icicle, Peshastin, and Mission Creeks as well as seven regulated alpine lakes (Figure 1). These will be used to evaluate proposed alternatives for managing water in Icicle Creek.
