Biological Outcomes of this project: Improved fry to smolt survival of spring chinook and coho salmon, steelhead and resident fish, including bull trout.
Biological Data: Smolt outmigration estimates are available from the Chandler juvenile facility, located at Prosser. In some cases, site monitoring will be needed to better measure project efficacy. For restoration projects, snorkel surveys and other methods will be employed as appropriate. Fishway construction and removal of barriers provides access to habitats that are currently blocked, thus no anadromous fish utilize project areas until after the project is implemented. Because project monitoring will typically start with a baseline of zero fish, only very basic monitoring is proposed. Snorkel or seining surveys, and possibly coho and/or steelhead redd surveys will be undertaken at index sites in some of the reconnected tributaries. Fish screen performance will be monitored through observation.


CBFWA-Generated Information

Database Administrator notes on the history of this proposal form: None
Type of Project (assigned by CBFWA Analysts): anadromous


Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
1998 Migration barrier/unscreened diversion survey completed in lower Wilson Creek
1999 Project manager hired
1999 One migration barrier removed, adding two miles of anadromous habitat
1999 One migration barrier improved, adding over nine miles of habitat during the non-irrigation season, and one mile of habitat during the irrigation season.
1999 $108,400 state grant awarded to provide cost share for the consolidation of four unscreened diversions to one pump diversion, allowing complete removal of one barrier and one partial barrier
1999 $53,200 state grant awarded to provide cost share for construction of fishway over one permanent barrier
2000 Plans developed in collaboration with private landowners to construct one large gravity screen, one pump screen and two canal undershoots
2000 Permit applications for all work scheduled for summer/fall of 2000 submitted
