  • About the Edition

    This report summarizes instream flow water rights applications and related activities of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) during the eleventh year of the statewide instream flow program. The status of instream flow applications prepared by other agencies and the private sector in Alaska is also reported. Alaskan legislation, regulations, and other activities that influence instream flow protection are identified and reviewed. Between July 1, 1997 and June 30, 1998, instream flow analyses were completed by the ADF&G for four river reaches: Karluk River, Kvichak River, Newhalen River, and Wood River. Applications to acquire instream flow water rights (reservations) will be submitted to the Alaska Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for adjudication based on these analyses. Seventy-six applications for reservations of water have been filed by the ADF&G under AS 46.15.145 of the Alaska Water Use Act since 1986. Ten have been granted by the DNR. DNR has initiated adjudication procedures for 18 of the ADF&Gs pending applications since June 1997. A date for completion has not been established; nor has a timeline been proposed by the DNR for processing the remainder of the pending ADF&G applications. Federal agencies and the private sector have filed 156 applications for reservations of water under AS 46.15.145. Four of these applications were filed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (one has been granted), one-hundred-fifty-two by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and two by the private sector. With the exception of one of the pending private applications, the adjudication process has not been initiated by the DNR for the remaining applications for reservations of water. Two legislatively mandated reservations of water have been granted by the DNR to comply with instream flow protection provisions of the 1992 water sales and export amendments to the Alaska Water Use Act (AS 46.15.035 and AS 46.15.037). The reservations were granted as part of the adjudication process for the Blue Lake water export project in Sitka. Instream flow protection was also achieved through other state and federal mechanisms, but is not reported in detail. An evaluation to identify and select options for reducing the states costs associated with managing water allocation in Alaska was completed by the DNR in 1997. Options ranged from eliminating the Alaska Water Use Act to retaining the status quo. The DNR selected to maintain the status quo for the time being, but, is in the process of internally evaluating regulatory change proposals.

The literature on instream flow benefits per acre-foot suggests an annual value of instream flow on Middle Creek to be in the order of $ million to $ million each year, or a present value of $ million to $ million over 50 years.
