Supporting Measures

Additional measures to accomplish the goals of the Edwards Aquifer Habitat Conservation Plan

Ecological Modeling

The Edwards Aquifer Authority will oversee the development of a predictive ecological model to evaluate potential adverse ecological effects from Covered Activities and to the extent that such effects are determined to occur, to quantify their magnitude. The model results will help the Applicants develop alternative approaches or possible mitigation strategies, if necessary.
