RED BLUFF, Calif. – The Bureau of Reclamation will hold a public scoping meeting to solicit input on the Coleman National Fish Hatchery Adaptive Management Plan (CNFH AMP) as it relates to potential impacts on the Battle Creek Salmon and Steelhead Restoration Project (Restoration Project). Adaptive management is needed for CNFH in order to address any scientific uncertainties that underlie aspects of Battle Creek fisheries management, including the interactions between the Restoration Project and CNFH.
The Restoration Project is a collaborative effort among Reclamation, Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E), National Marine Fisheries Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the California Department of Fish and Game, various resource agencies and local stakeholders to restore approximately 48 miles of habitat in Battle Creek and its tributaries for threatened and endangered Chinook salmon and Central Valley steelhead, while maintaining clean and renewable energy production at the PG&E Battle Creek Hydroelectric Project.
The public scoping meeting will be held:
Thursday, May 24, 2012, 6–9 p.m.
Red Bluff Community Center, Westside Room
1500 South Jackson Street
The scoping meeting will be the first of three opportunities for the public to comment on the CNFH AMP during its 18-month development timeframe.
Written comments associated with the CNFH AMP scoping process must be received by close of business Monday, June 25, 2012, and should be mailed to Trang Nguyen, Battle Creek Technical Specialist, Bureau of Reclamation, Mid-Pacific Region, 2800 Cottage Way, MP-200, Sacramento, CA 95825; faxed to 916-978-5345; or emailed to email@example.com.
