Restoring Fish Habitat in the Puntledge River Headpond
Chinook Salmon: James Baxter
Small Woody Debris Restoration in the Puntledge River Headpond
This pilot project will determine whether the addition of strategically placed Small Woody Debris (SWD) in the Puntledge River headpond could potentially reduce summer Chinook Salmon fry entrainment at the hydro facility by providing a safer and more complex corridor for migration away from the hydro penstock intakes. The project will also determine whether rearing habitat will be enhanced, allowing fry to remain in the headpond longer, growing to a preferable larger size before they migrate past the hydro facility, with a higher diversion rate at the Eicher fish screens.
