Title
Merced River Agricultural Diversion and Fish Habitat Enhancement Project
Description
The overall vision of the Merced River Agricultural Diversion and Fish Habitat Enhancement Project (Proposed Project) is to reduce negative effects of agricultural diversions on salmonids by increasing quantity and quality of spawning, incubation, and rearing habitat, increasing salmonid survival, and reducing or eliminating salmonid entrainment/impingement/predation while increasing water diversion efficiency and reliability within the Lower Merced River (LMR). The Proposed Project aims to enhance up to three Cowell Agreement surface water diversions on the LMR (Figure 1) and to address issues presented by diversions along the LMR with long-standing water rights, including improperly functioning fish screens, poor diversion siting, and diversion configurations which are not engineered or designed to meet fish and diverter needs. Design and construction will occur in two phases, targeting the Cowell 2 diversion in the first year and the Cowell 1 and Cuneo diversions in the second.
