Document Description
The project is expected to be contracted in two phases and will include modifications to the facilities at eight Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) dam sites located on the North Fork Battle Creek, South fork Battle Creek, Ripley Creek, and Soap Creek. Phase 1, which will improve fish passage on the North Fork of Battle Creek, includes removal of Wildcat Diversion Dam and installation of fish screens and ladders on Eagle Canyon and North Battle Creek Feeder Diversion Dams. To eliminate the risk of entrainment of salmonids in the water conveyance facilities at Inskip Powerhouse and Coleman Diversion Dam, Phase 1 will also include installation of tailrace connectors to convey water directly from the Inskip and South Powerhouses to downstream canals and replacement of a penstock bypass facility at the Inskip Powerhouse. Phase 2, which will improve fish passage on the South Fork of Battle Creek, includes removal of Coleman and South Diversion Dams and installation of fish screens and ladders on Inskip Diversion Dam. Phase 2 also includes removal of Lower Ripley Creek and Soap Creek Feeder Diversion Dams located on Ripley and South Creeks, which flow into the South Fork Battle Creek.
