Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: The Chiloquin Dam Fish Passage Feasibility Study was authorized by Congress in May 2002 under the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act, to be completed within one year. The feasibility of providing adequate upstream and downstream passage for endangered sucker fish at Chiloquin Dam was to be studied by Reclamation for the Secretary of the Interior, in collaboration with the BIA, MPID, ODFW, and Klamath Indian Tribes. The study was to evaluate various fish passage alternatives, including dam removal, and determine the preferred action which maintains MPID water deliveries. Reclamation was directed by the Secretary to conduct the study since the sucker fish are primarily dependent upon water bodies within Reclamation's Klamath Project. An appraisal-level study was performed by Reclamation due to time constraints.
