  • 9. The Problem<br />RBDD impedes passage for ESA species<br />Spring-run salmon<br />Winter-run salmon<br />Steelhead trout<br />Green sturgeon<br />ESA concerns have reduced “gates-in” operation<br />To spawning areas<br />To ocean<br />
  • 10. Gate Operations<br />
  • 11. Gate Operation vs. Ag Demand<br />Gates-in period is shorter than agricultural demand period.<br />
  • 12. Interim Pumping Plant<br />2009 NMFS BO significantly reduced gate operations to June 15 to August 31<br />The Interim Pumping Plant was constructed to compensate for the lost diversion ability<br />Series of 10 cone screens (to protect juvenile fish) and pumps<br />Design capacity of 500 cfs <br />Cost: $8.1 million <br />
