Water supply, Biology

A rural town in an established agricultural area with no prospects for extensive development is located along a river that is used as the source of water supply for the community. The conditions of the river are such that it takes its water from a catchment area of 2,590 km2 and its low-water flow is 0.00109 m3/s/km2. The regulations are that only 10% of the river flow can be used at any time for water supply. Past records reveal that the population enhanced as follows:
