Bonneville Power Administration is proposing to fund the Idaho Department of Fish and Game to modify existing facilities at the Springfield Hatchery, located in Bingham County, Idaho. The purpose of this project is to increase the hatchery’s capability of rearing to up to one million sockeye salmon smolts annually. This is part of a larger effort to restore endangered Snake River sockeye salmon to the Stanley Basin. One of the goals of this project is to develop a locally adapted, self-sustaining population of sockeye salmon in the upper Snake River subbasin over the next 20-25 years.

To understand the potential environmental impacts of this proposal, BPA will prepare a supplement analysis (SA) to the Fish and Wildlife Implementation Plan Environmental Impact Statement (FWIP EIS, DOE/EIS-0312, April 2003). In the SA, BPA will analyze the potential effects of constructing new facilities and increasing juvenile sockeye salmon production on the natural and built environment. During this process BPA will seek public input and comment.
