U.S. Bureau of Reclamation Finds No Significant Impact for Trap and Haul Operation in Conjunction with San Joaquin River Settlement Agreement
California Water Law & Policy Reporter, Volume 25, Number 7
In continued implementation of the San Joaquin River Settlement Agreement (Settlement), the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Bureau) issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for a proposed trap-and-haul study whereby juvenile fall-run chinook salmon would be trapped and hauled downstream of the San Joaquin River Restoration Program’s Restoration Area. During a year when migration habitat does not exist in all reaches of the river, the proposed trap and haul will promote the Settlement’s goal of restoring and maintaining fish populations in the River.
