The Nimbus Fish Hatchery is uniquely situated in the lower American River corridor in a major metropolitan area. The area between Hazel Avenue and the Nimbus Dam is known as Nimbus Shoals and is open to the public from 6:00a.m. to 9:00p.m. during the summer season, and from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. during the winter season. The area is heavily used by anglers.

Document Description
Note: Extended per lead The primary purpose of the project is to replace and maintain a fully functional system for collecting adult fish for meeting mitigation goals. Secondary objectives include eliminating the need for flow reduction associated with weir removal and maintenance, minimizing operations and maintenance costs, and improving public and worker safety. Two approaches to meeting the fish passageway by extending the ladder to Nimbus Dam (Alternative 1) and replacing the weir structure (Alternative 2). The alternatives evaluated in the EIS/EIR include two options for implementing Alternative 1. Inclusion of the No Action Alternative is prescribes by the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) and serves as a benchmark against which project alternatives can be evaluated.
