Section 7. Abstract


The Walla Walla River is heavily diverted for agricultural use. Inadequate flow and passage conditions are a primary factor in the decline of native summer steelhead runs and extirpation of spring chinook in the basin. The goal of this project is to enhance adult passage conditions in the Walla Walla River by removing passage barriers and improving adult ladders. Two diversion dams were removed in FY97 and two ladders were improved in FY98 under the project. The fish ladder to be constructed under this proposal is the last structural adult passage improvement currently identified for the basin. Correction of the adult passage problems in the basin is a key component of the overall plan to rehabilitate and restore fish runs in the Walla Walla River. Adult survival benefits to production areas realized from the project's completion will contribute to the NPPC rebuilding goal.
