Project Overview

Successful survival and recruitment of salmonids requires freshwater migration corridors thatfunction sufficiently to provide adequate passage. For this reason, freshwater migration corridors are considered to have a high conservation value and are ofutmost priority for restoration in Mill and Deer Creek watersheds within this critical decade. Project partners are converting an irrigation ditch network to a closed pipe system that can reduce existing diversion by about 9.9...

Successful survival and recruitment of salmonids requires freshwater migration corridors thatfunction sufficiently to provide adequate passage. For this reason, freshwater migration corridors are considered to have a high conservation value and are ofutmost priority for restoration in Mill and Deer Creek watersheds within this critical decade. Project partners are converting an irrigation ditch network to a closed pipe system that can reduce existing diversion by about 9.9 csf. Assuming 60% of this ammount could be dedicated to instream flow - over a 180-day irrigation season this would have sae 2,117 acre-feet/year. Savings will be higher if the final plan includes some form of groundwater exchange and/or aquifer storage to supplement spring and fall flows.
