Section 7. Abstract


Fish Passage, Inc. and its subcontractors have assembled a team of interested engineers and fish biologists to design, build, and operate a prototype Boylan Fish Pipeline in the C. J. Strike Reservoir for the express purpose of pushing fish through a reservoir for an extended time period to test stress levels related to water pressure, flow velocity, fish population densities, in daylight, and in darkness. This team of engineers and biologists will also deliver a full scale Boylan Fish Pipeline design package consisting of existing, available technology. Our time schedule shows eight (8) months to twelve (12) months to design and build the prototype system, and twelve (12) to sixteen (16) months to test and report results. We have a number of co-operating agencies who will be advising and monitoring this project: Idaho Power has donated the use of C.J.Strike Reservoir and will determine the risks of this pipeline operating in a power generating reservoir; Idaho Department of Fish and Game will provide fish for the test and will monitor fish stress testing procedures; the Corps of Engineers will evaluate the integration of the Boylan Fish Pipeline into the existing reservoir system of the Lower Snake and Columbia Rivers.
