Short Description Develop a well water supply system for the Hardy Creek chum salmon spawning channel. This system will mimic spring and seepage flow to ensure that water will be provided to the spawning channel during subfreezing weather when Hardy Creek is frozen.
Target Species Chum Salmon. This species is part of the Evolutionarily Significant Unit for Columbia River chum salmon.

Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
2000 Chum salmon spawning channel adjacent to Hardy Creek was constructed. The Corps of Engineers provided funding for the spawning channel. Drought conditions precluded use of the channel in the fall of 2000.


Section 3. Relationships to Other Projects

Project ID Title Description
200001200 Evaluate Factors Limiting Columbia River Gorge Chum Salmon Populations A primary objective of this project is to enhance and restore chum salmon production in Hamilton and Hardy Creeks. The proposed well system will contribute to this objective in Hardy Creek.
199900301 Evaluation of Spawning for Fall Chinook and Chum Salmon Just Below the Four Lowermost Columbia River Dams Data from spawning channel chum salmon will be provided to the participants in this study.
