Section 7. Abstract


The RSBOJC is proposing a plan to increase salmon and steelhead populations by improving water-quality. The water quality will be improved by reducing sedimentation, temperature and other important factors. These water quality improvements will be accomplished by the incorporation of sedimentation basins to capture sediment before it can discharge to the lower Yakima River. Installation of the settling basins will be achieved through a six-step program, which will consist of study, design, property acquisition, construction, O & M, and documentation.
