Document Description
The proposed Hills Ferry Barrier Project is located on the San Joaquin River upstream of the confluence with the Merced River. The San Joaquin River at the confluence with the Merced River is a relatively broad (125 foot-wide), low gradient stream. The Project area consists of the seasonal installation, operation, and removal of the Hills Ferry Barrier in the San Joaquin River consistent with the Department's operation of the Barrier since 1992. The Barrier prevents adult fall-run Chinook salmon and Central Valley steelhead from swimming into the San Joaquin River upstream of the confluence of the Merced River where habitat conditions and water quality are currently unsuitable for anadromous fish to complete their life cycle.
