For Release: February 17, 2004

The Bureau of Reclamation has developed a new research Web site for the Tracy Fish Collection Facility. This Web site describes research being performed for the Central Valley Project Improvement Act and has broad applications for fishery protection at large water diversions in the South Delta region of California. The Web site provides the public and cooperating agencies access to unique research data specifically devoted to the development of fish protection techniques and the latest technology used in fish research.

Besides providing general information, the Web site provides links to collaborating agencies, peer-reviewed technical reports, and photos of program activities at the Tracy facility, the Denver Research Laboratories, and the Red Bluff Research Pumping Plant. Summary reports from all facilities can be viewed and downloaded as Adobe Acrobat PDF files. Water quality data, collected every 30 minutes from a probe installed in the intake channel of the Tracy Facility, is also available for download.

For questions, please contact Mr. Doug Craft, Research Chemist, Reclamation's Denver Office, 303-445-2182.
