Title:
2015 Lower Klamath River Late-Summer Flow Augmentation from Lewiston Dam
Site:
Summary:
Continued dry hydrologic conditions and recent discovery of presence of Ich, the fish disease thought primarily responsible for the fish die-off in 2002, has prompted Reclamation to consider supplementing flows to the lower Klamath River in 2015. The Proposed Action includes a proactive release to prevent a disease outbreak and a contingency volume to be used on an emergency basis to avoid a significant die-off of adult salmon. Real-time environmental and biological monitoring by Federal, State and Tribal biologists would be used to determine if and when an emergency action would be implemented.
