3406(b)(1) Anadromous Fish Restoration Program

Fish Resource Area

Section 3406(b) of the CVPIA provides for improving natural reproduction conditions of anadromous fish like Chinook Salmon. It addresses adverse environmental impacts of the CVP, mitigates fishery impacts associated with the the C.W. “Bill” Jones Pumping Plant, assists with protection of the waters of the Bay-Delta Estuary, and helps meet obligations under the Federal Endangered Species Act (ESA). Along with the US Fish & Wildlife Service, CVPIA recently implemented aquatic habitat improvement projects on Clear Creek, the American, Stanislaus, Yuba, and upper Sacramento Rivers, Mill Creek, and Deer Creek.

Science Integration Team (SIT) and Structured Decision Making (SDM)

CVPIA established the SIT in 2015 to support SDM as an updated science-based framework to inform the use of the CVPIA’s Restoration Fund on Fish Resource Area projects. The SIT is a self-selected technical group made up of agency staff and stakeholders that follow the SDM process. The SIT works with local watershed groups and other local partners to advance the science of on-the-ground habitat and facility improvements in all Central Valley watersheds.
