Abstract
  • Lack of sufficient flow in the Eno River has caused several serious problems within its river basin, including water shortage during dry periods, deteriorated water quality, impaired scenic and aesthetic beauty of the stream, loss of recreational opportunities, and adverse effects on aquatic life forms. Because of rapid urban development within the river basin, increased water demand and adverse effects associated with urbanization are expected to make these problems more serious. In order to acquire and protect streamflows in the Eno River, five approaches are proposed: to increase the river's streamflow during dry seasons; to enhance water availability; to minimize adverse effects associated with urban development on the water resources; to legally acquire and protect streamflows in the river; and to obtain public support for streamflow protection. Integrating protection of the riverine environment into general community development is recommended in order to change public negative perceptions about protecting streamflow. Both planning and regulatory measures are necessary for effective protection of streamflows in the Eno River.
