BPA has published the final EIS for the Melvin R. Sampson Hatchery, a proposed Yakama Nation hatchery in Kittitas County, Washington. The draft EIS was released for public review and comment in March 2017; we received nine comments on the draft EIS. The final EIS was published in November 2017; it provides responses to those comments and has been revised with additional information in response to comments. BPA plans to make a decision whether to fund the proposal; the decision will be documented and released in a Record of Decision anticipated in early 2018.
