Short Description Enhance passage of juvenile and adult fish in Idaho's anadromous fish corridors by consolidation and elimination of irrigation diversions. Minimize adverse fish impacts of irrigation diversion dams, screen pump intakes and screen all irrigation canals.

NMFS and BPA did not associate any reasonable and prudent alternatives with this project proposal


Biological Outcomes of this project: 1. Twelve tributary streams will be reconnected, providing over 100 miles of spawning and rearing habitat and delivering cold tributary water to the main stem of the Salmon River. 2. Fish passage will be enhanced by removal of 15 wing diversion dams across migrating routes of adult and juvenile salmon and steelhead, thus, reducing delays of smolts due to entering irrigation canals. 3. Minimize need for irrigators to push up (with heavy equipment) stream substrate gravel into a diversion dam, thus assisting stream stability and fish food produciton. 4. Increase in-stream flows by converting from flood irrigation to more efficient sprinkler water distribution. This not only increases stream flows but reduces temperature and silt loads associated with return flows from flood irrigation. 5. Fish of all species are diverted back to their source at the fish screen.
Biological Data: Several older evaluation studies described in the reference section of the FY2000 application established some of the parameters used to measure biological outcomes used today. Trap data on the return (by-pass) pipes indicate numbers and species of fish diverted by fish screens. Electrofishing and some snorkel counts down canal of fish screens and in-stream near the points of diversion are collected where needed and as time and funds allow.
