Document Description
The Battle Creek Salmon and Steelhead Restoration Project will reestablish approx. 42 miles of Chinook salmon and steelhead habitat in the north and south forks of Battle Creek, plus an additional 6 miles of habitat on its tributaries. Restoration will be accomplished primarily through the modification of the existing Battle Creek Hydroelectric Project (Hydroelectric Project, FERC No. 1121) facilities and operations, including instream flow releases. Facility and operational modifications will be on a scale where habitat improvement goals can be met without excessive loss of renewable electric generation. Specifically, the Restoration Project is intended to benefit the Central Valley spring-run Chinook salmon, state and federally listed as threatened; the Sacramento River winter-run Chinook salmon, state and federally listed as endangered; and the Central Valley steelhead, state and federally listed as threatened.
