ODFW Fish Screening Task Force to meet in Madras
 
July 12, 2011

 

SALEM, Ore. - Oregon's Fish Screening Task Force will meet in Madras on Thursday, July 28 at Portland General Electric, 726 Lower Bend Road, Madras, Ore. 97441.

The meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday and the agenda includes an update on projects and activities in northeast Oregon. On Friday, July 29, there will be a half-day field trip to look at fish screen projects in the area. The field trip will leave at 8:15 a.m. from The Inn at Cross Keys Station 66 NW Cedar St, Madras, OR 97441. The public will need to provide their own transportation if attending the field trip.

The ODFW Fish Screening Program coordinates a cost share program for the installation of screens at water diversions. Fish screens prevent the loss of fish when water is used for irrigation, municipal, hydroelectric or other beneficial purposes. The Task Force is appointed by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission and its members represent agricultural, fisheries and public interests.  It meets several times a year to advise the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife on fish screening policies and issues.

Reasonable accommodations are provided as needed for individuals requesting assistive hearing devices, sign language interpreters or large-print materials.  Individuals needing these types of accommodations may call the Information and Education Division at 800-720-6339 or 503-947-6002 at least 24 hours before the meeting.  For more information, call Pete Baki, Statewide Fish Screening Coordinator, at 503-947-6217.
