Title: Long-Term Plan to Protect Adult Salmon in the Lower Klamath River
Summary: The Bureau of Reclamation has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Long Term Plan to Protect Adult Salmon in the Lower Klamath River. The purpose of the DEIS is to address the potentially significant environmental effects of implementing flow-related actions to reduce the likelihood, and potentially reduce the severity, of an Ich (Ichthyophthirius multifiliis) epizootic event that could lead to an associated fish die-off in future years. Ich is a pathogen that can cause mortality in fish. Ich grows on the gills and suffocates the fish. Crowded holding conditions for pre-spawn adults, warm water temperatures, and presence of disease pathogens are the likely major factors contributing to the adult mortalities. The DEIS will consider a no action and two action alternatives, evaluating the direct, indirect, and cumulative environmental effects of implementing a project.
