The first Instream Flow Council meeting was held in Denver, Colorado, March 1998. The mission of IFC is to improve the effectiveness of state and provincial instream flow and water level programs for restoring, maintaining, and enhancing aquatic ecosystems. The IFC has subsequently charted a course to meet the needs of its members of fish and wildlife agencies in the United States and Canada.
