Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: The Ideal Cement Company Dam and Powerhouse complex is a multiple element grouping of resources located along the Rogue River channel northeast of Gold Hill, Oregon. The complex includes a concrete diversion dam, diverting water into a canal that leads to a powerhouse built by the Ideal Cement Company to supply its plant in Gold Hill. After the company ceased operation, the diversion dam remained functional a part of the City's municipal watersupply. With completion of a new water intake approximately 150-feet upstream, the Diversion Dam is no longer integral to the system and the City of Gold Hill proposes to remove the entire dam structure upstream of the headgate to eliminate fish obstructions in the Rogue River channel. This proposal is based on the recommendations of a Phase II report prepared for the City of Gold Hill by the Bureau of Reclamation under the direction of the Rogue River Basin Fish Passage Technical Committee (BofR, 2001).
