Funding for this Project will be used to complete the second phase of studies to evaluate existing conditions as part of the planning process to inform the possible removal of an anadromous fish passage barrier on Auburn Ravine where NID operates a diversion structure at the Hemphill site. The Project continues a comprehensive planning effort to analyze existing watershed information about Auburn Ravine including: sediment transport and streamflow data, water quality, fisheries data, recovery planning for threatened and endangered species, and consultation and coordination with federal, state, and local partners in development and selection of preferred alternative.
