Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) is partially funding construction and operation of the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks (MFWP) Sekokini Springs Isolation Facility Project. Under the Proposed Action, the MFWP will modify the existing infrastructure to improve the hatchery facility and create naturalized rearing ponds and water conveyance channels. The new facility will allow the spawning, rearing, and isolation of up to four genetically unique stocks of westslope cutthroat trout originating from parent stocks obtained from the drainages where the offspring would be released. The alterations to the site, as proposed by MFWP, will require the United States Forest Service (USFS) to modify MFWP's existing Special Use Permit, which expires on December 31, 2017.
