Title:
San Joaquin River Restoration Program Juvenile Fall-Run Chinook Salmon Trap and Haul Study
Site:
Summary:
Reclamation proposes to implement a trap and haul study to support the NRDC, et al., v. Kirk Rodgers, et al. settlement Restoration Goal. The study would assess the feasibility of moving juvenile fall-run Chinook salmon downstream of the Restoration Area where the San Joaquin River is connected in low flow years and no migration barriers exist, and monitor fish movements in Reach 1 of the San Joaquin River during a Critical Low hydrologic water-year type where no flow pulses are available to cue juvenile salmon downstream migration in already low water conditions. To capture juvenile fish, temporary fence weirs would be installed in three locations in Reach 1 of the San Joaquin River: within 1 mile downstream of the Highway 41 Bridge, at Scout Island, and within 1 mile downstream of the Highway 99 Bridge.

Status:
02/06/2015:
Reclamation is proposing to implement the same 2014 trap and haul study in 2015, but with minor changes (dates and locations). The impacts associated with implementing this study in 2015 are within those analyzed and disclosed in the 2014 EA, and a Finding of No New Signification Impact was signed on February 3, 2015 to disclose the minimal changes.

02/20/2014:
2014 FONSI signed and EA completed on February 20, 2014.
