Section 7. Abstract


The screen for the USFS diversion structure on Eightmile Creek, used for irrigation of the Forest Service’s Eightmile Ranch, is inadequate, and anadromous and resident fish --including fish listed and proposed in the Endangered Species Act--are killed as a result. The goal is simple: stop this fish mortality with an adequate screen structure. This could be accomplished in one summer season. The design of such structures is standard and would pose no unusual difficulty, nor would its construction. Monitoring and maintenance of the new screen is the responsibility of the Forest Service, and would be carried out regularly as part of the irrigation of the Eightmile Ranch.
