Section 7. Abstract


The goal of this task (IV) will reduce juvenile migration delay and improve juvenile survival by constructing a new fish screen meeting NMFS criteria on the Challis Canal (S-32). The overall goal of this multi-year project has been to reduce the number of irrigation diversions and enhance instream flows through water conservation measures on the Salmon River. Eliminating diversions reduces opportunities for juvenile entrainment and migration delay, eliminates the need for irrigators to enter the river with heavy equipment up to twice a year to construct “push-up” gravel diversion berms, and converting some irrigators from flood to sprinkler irrigation enhances instream flows. The elimination of the Keyes, Lower McGowan, and Upper McGowan canals and conversion of several irrigators from flood to sprinkler irrigation completed in Task I (FY-96) resulted in a savings of about 9,000 acre feet annually. The elimination of the Laverty (S-29) diversion (task II & III) will result in about 10,800 acre feet less water diverted annually that will remain in the Salmon River
