VFD Fish Passage Conceptual Design Final Report 9-15-10.pdf

            The Fish Passage Review Panel for the Freeman is made up of seven nationally-recognized experts on fish passage.  It was asked to evaluate current fish passages facilities and develop alternative options for improving passage.  Its work is important to maximize the likelihood that any changes to the Freeman’s structure and its operation will benefit fish.  The work of the panel is an important step in the development of a Habitat Conservation Plan for United Water Conservation District.
