Soda Springs is part of PacifiCorp’s North Umpqua Hydroelectric Project which includes 8 dams and 8 powerhouses that supply an annual average of 100 mw of power. The most downstream dam, Soda Springs, is 180 miles from the ocean and blocked access of anadromous fish to about 8 miles of upstream river and creek habitat.

Presenter Rich Grost is a PacifiCorp employee and has been dedicated to conceiving, designing, building, operating and implementing the Soda Springs Fish Passage Facility and program. We are pleased that he will share his experiences with the Soda Springs facility in this next webinar. For the last 14 years he put his experience to work for PacifiCorp after obtaining degrees from Michigan State and the University of Wyoming, and experience working for engineering firms and as a self-employed consultant.

Please join and/or circulate this to others you think may be interested.
