Implementation Plan

Fremont Weir Adult Fish Passage Modification Project

To meet requirements in the 2009 National Marine Fisheries Service’s Biological Opinion and Conference Opinion on the Long-Term Operations of the Central Valley Project and State Water Project, the California Department of Water Resources and Bureau of Reclamation are proposing the Fremont Weir Adult Fish Passage Modification Project.

The purpose of the proposed project is to improve fish passage at the Fremont Weir and within the Tule Canal. The project would modify an existing fish ladder at the Fremont Weir and improve fish passage within the channel both upstream and downstream of the Fremont Weir. In addition, one downstream agricultural road crossing would be removed and another such crossing would be replaced with a structure that provides improved fish passage within the Tule Canal.

DWR and Reclamation have released the Initial Study/Environmental Assessment for the proposed Fremont Weir Adult Fish Passage Modification Project. Reclamation signed a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) on July 14, 2017.

The project was part of the original Yolo Bypass Salmonid Habitat Restoration and Fish Passage Project and was identified to be included in California EcoRestore in 2015.
