Supplement Analysis for the Watershed Management Program EIS (DOE/EIS-0265/SA-100) - Oregon Fish Screening Project, Screen Replacements 2003
BPA is proposing to fund a project that will provide immediate and long-term protection for anadromous and resident fish through the replacement of out-of-criteria screening devices on private irrigation diversions and dam structures. The goal of this project is to replace approximately 20 screening devices during the 2003 work period. These screening projects will take place in the mainstem, middle fork, and south fork of the John Day River and, if the need arises, in the Umatilla/Walla Walla and Grande Ronde/Imnaha subbasins. Projects are prioritized using the Priority Screening Criteria point system adopted by ODFW from the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board. Factors considered in prioritization include: fish species status, fish numbers, diversion size, diversion flow relative to stream, fish migration, habitat quality, basin priority, and diversions screened within the stream system.
