This report summarizes the technical analysis of the flow dependent characteristics of physical habitat for target aquatic species within the Comal and San Marcos Rivers to support the Science Committee of the Edwards Aquifer Recovery Implementation Program in development of their recommendations for flow regimes under Senate Bill 2 'J Charges'. Target species were fountain darter (Etheostoma fonticola), Texas wild rice (Zizania texana), and the Comal Springs riffle beetle (Heterelmis comalensis). In addition, qualitative assessments of other native and non-native species as well as recreation were considered.
