Fix a Rogue River Dam

Apr 25, 2013

We have a plan!

This spring, WaterWatch and the Gold Hill Irrigation District agreed upon a single alternative to modify the existing structure to improve screening and passage while reducing the overall volume of water diverted by the dam.

We entered into another collaborative agreement for the implementation phase. This agreement basically requires us to look for funding to build the preferred alternative. This decision has been supported by both ODFW and NMFS. We recently submitted an application to OWEB to fund the project, and continue to search for matching funds from other sources. ODFW has committed to directly fund some of the improvements in fish passage outlined in the agreement.
