Upper Columbia United Tribes seeks feedback on Phase I Plan for Upper Columbia River Basin Fish Passage & Reintroduction

Phase I Plan for Upper Columbia River Basin Fish Passage & Reintroduction

The Upper Columbia United Tribes (UCUT) have developed a draft work and coordination plan to initiate investigations into the reintroduction of anadromous fish back into main stem Columbia River reaches and tributaries in the United States.

Check out the coverage on this topic in The Spokesman-Review.

We want to hear your thoughts!

UCUT's phase 1 work plan proposes 11 objectives and 36 tasks to gather sufficient background information on scientific feasibility, possible cost, and habitat potential. This information will then be reviewed by the Council and region before deciding on whether to construct interim fish passage facilities at Chief Joseph and Grand Coulee dams, test fish reintroductions and pursue additional studies.

Let us know what you think! UCUT would appreciate your review and comment on this draft project work and coordination plan. Email John Sirois, john@ucut-nsn.org.
