Red Bluff Research Pumping Plant Report Series

The following peer-reviewed technical reports were produced by the Red Bluff Fish Facilities Research Program, a program that evaluated fish-friendly pumps and lifts such as Archimedes lifts and various diameter Hidrostal pumps. These pumping systems are designed to safely transport fish entrained in irrigation diversion structures. Abstracts may be viewed before reports are downloaded as Adobe Acrobat PDF files (click here to download Acrobat Reader).  Please contact Kathy Fenton if you have any questions.
