Section 7. Abstract


In the 1990’s, CTUIR and ODFW along with many other agencies have begun implementing fisheries restoration activities in the Walla Walla Basin. An integral part of this effort, as outlined in Section 7.10 of the Fish and Wildlife Program, is to alleviate the inadequate migration conditions in the basin. This is being addressed by removing diversion dams, constructing fish passage facilities, and initiating trap and haul efforts. The Fish Passage Operations Project objective is to increase adult and juvenile migrant survival in the Walla Walla Basin. The project will provide survival benefits for migrating juveniles and adults by operating and maintaining ladders, screen sites, bypasses, trap facilities, and hauling equipment and coordinating these operations. The project also provides valuable support by refining fish passage criteria and providing technical expertise on passage facility design and operation. The project began in FY 1998 as a part of the Umatilla River Trap and Haul Project and is being proposed separately in FY 2000. Recommendations based on project observations of migration are incorporated into subbasin management documents and technical recommendations have been included in the design of fish passage facilities in the basin. The project is viewed as a long term O&M project required for maintaining the survival advantages achieved by implementation of the fish passage projects in the basin being constructed under project numbers 9601100.
