The BPA is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act on funding proposed changes to the existing salmon and steelhead hatchery program in the Klickitat subbasin in Klickitat and Yakima counties, Wash. These changes are outlined in the Klickitat River Anadromous Fisheries Master Plan prepared by the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation.
The proposed project would involve changes to the salmon and steelhead hatchery programs in the Klickitat subbasin to increase abundance of natural spawners and increase harvest opportunities for Yakama Nation tribal members and others. These changes to the program would result in modification of the Klickitat Hatchery located seven miles east of Glenwood, Wash. The proposed changes may also involve construction of a new Wahkiacus Hatchery and Acclimation Facility and a steelhead acclimation facility at McCreedy Creek at river mile 70.
