The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors Tuesday signed an agreement intended to bring together a broad array of government, farming and environmental interests on science and stream restoration projects in the Russian River watershed.

The pact, which officials are calling the Russian River Compact, is largely a set of principles spelling out how public agencies and private groups with a stake in the river can best collaborate to improve it for wildlife while maintaining its supply for drinking water and farms and preventing damaging floods.
