ODFW Fish Passage Task Force to consider passage waivers for Baker County and Malheur Basin projects

November 7, 2013

SALEM, Ore. - Oregon's Fish Passage Task Force will meet Friday, Nov. 15, 2013 at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Screen Shop located at 3561 Klindt Drive, The Dalles, OR 97058 to consider current statewide fish passage issues, including the two passage waiver requests in southeast and northeast Oregon. 

The meeting will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is open to the public. The agenda includes consideration of Baker County’s request for a waiver for the Mason Dam Hydroelectric Project in the Power River Basin, and the Warm Springs Irrigation District’s waiver proposal for the Warm Springs Dam Hydroelectric Project in the Malheur River Basin. ODFW staff also will present the Department’s benefit analysis for each project. 

The nine-member Fish Passage Task Force meets quarterly to advise ODFW on fish passage policies and issues. Task Force members represent water users, fisheries and conservation interests, and the general public.
