Document Title
Fish Passage and Habitat Improvements to Dry Creek Project
Document Type
FON - FONSI - Findings of No Significant Impact

Document Description
The project consist of removing a low flow crossing and a low flow stream channel would be constructed; Beale Lake Dam and an existing fish ladder would be fully removed and the Beale Lake area would be re-graded and restored to a free-flowing reach of Dry Creek; and four locations upstream of Beale Air Force Base would receive gravel injections outside of the natural low flow channel, within the floodplain, to allow the material to be naturally distributed downstream of the injection sites during high flow events, improving spawning habitat for salmonids that would now be able to access these reaches of Dry Creek. The above ground extent of an abandoned sewer pipe will also be removed.
