Short Description Install new fish screens at all significant diversions in the Yakima River Basin to keep juvenile salmon and steelhead from being diverted and lost in canals during outmigration. Improve adult upstream passage at selected sites.

Biological Outcomes of this project: Improved juvenile fish survival at Yakima Basin gravity water diversions is widely believed to be important in improving overall egg-to-smolt survival of critically depressed stocks of naturally-produced spring chinook, fall chinook, and steelhead. This also applies to the progeny of future returning adult Yakima Fisheries Project supplementation fish that will naturally reproduce on the spawning grounds. Completion of the Phase II fish screen construction program, and on-going preventative screen maintenance addressed by Project #199200900 and Project #199503300, are complementary infrastructure investments intended to safeguard and enhance the other Fish and Wildlife Program anadromous fish recovery investments in the basin. All Phase II screens are designed to meet current regional fish screening criteria adopted in 1995 by NMFS and the Washington, Oregon, and Idaho screening programs. Current screening criteria is based on research conducted primarily from 1985 to 1995.
Biological Data: Completed projects are periodically evaluated by fishery scientists from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) under Project #198506200. Independent evaluation, both hydraulic and biological, by an independent third party not directly involved in screen construction or O&M, provides valuable adaptive management feedback used by the Yakima Screen Shop, Reclamation, and the Fish Passage Technical Work Group to improve screen fabrication and O&M procedures with the objective of providing optimum protection of juvenile salmonids at gravity water diversions. Evaluations conducted under Project #198506200 by PNNL confirm that Yakima Phase II fish screens constructed to the current criteria and properly operated and maintained, protect fry from injury/mortality and achieve bypass guidance rates in the 90-99 percent range. Fish screen facilities with this high level of protection performance minimize a source of mortality that could reduce basin smolt production.
