Aquatic Project Assessment App on RePlan
RePlan tool integrates natural resources and planning datasets with analytical and reporting tools on a web-based technology platform to help inform and advance regional planning objectives. The overall approach and methodology used in this tool was developed through an interagency team consisting of the California Energy Commission, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, California Wildlife Conservation Board, California Department of Water Resources, Caltrans, California Department of Conservation, California Strategic Growth Council, US Fish and Wildlife Service, UC Davis and The Nature Conservancy. Support for the development of this application has come from the California High Speed Rail Authority and the Wildlife Conservation Board.
RePlan recently launched a new program-specific application for the Urban Streams Restoration Program and San Joaquin Fish Population Enhancement Program at the California Department of Water Resources (DWR). This tool helps DWR staff evaluate the program benefits and conservation effectiveness of proposed projects and resource management actions. This is accomplished through the integration of additional aquatic resource datasets with the existing assortment of regional planning data, analytical tools, evaluation matrices and customized reporting functions. Components of this application can be viewed by the general public by opening the programmatic tab on the RePlan home page and clicking the “explore” function next to the Urban Streams Restoration Program and San Joaquin Fish Population Enhancement Program.
