How to plan the minimum environmental flow to provide the right habitat for fishes and other aquatic organisms particularly during low flow? Is it possible to fix a standard flow rate or does it vary according to the river basin in accordance to local conditions? What type of baseline survey needs to be carried out to determine the minimum flow rate for environmental flows?
