Project history

Biological results achieved
This study would have doubtful productivity since results there have not been encouraging.

Management implications
Results of study could affect volumes and timing of flows and spill needed during the spring/summer migration and need for transportation program; this in turn could affect amount and timing of availability of power from the hydrosystem.

Specific measureable objectives
Determine ability to increase BON 1 FGE.
