Specific measureable objectives
Hypothesis a.4: habitat quantity and quality for rearing spring/summer chinook salmon cannot be enhanced by increased availability of irrigation ditch segments.
Underlying assumptions or critical constraints
Brief schedule of activities
Salmon juveniles enter irrigation ditches when screens are removed, inoperative, or at outflow/return points. There is a need to know the extent of the use, and if the ditches can be managed for rearing habitat.
Summary of expected outcome
