BPA is proposing to fund capital improvements to existing facilities at the Klickitat Hatchery that would support an increase in spring Chinook salmon production and allow the Yakama Nation to transition from a segregated to an integrated spring Chinook production program. The hatchery was built in 1954, and most of the facilities have not been renovated. It is operated jointly by the Yakama Nation and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. Your comments will help BPA determine the issues that should be addressed in the environmental review. 

For more information, go to the project’s webpage, contact the Project Manager Carolyn Sharp, or Communications@bpa.gov.

The comment period is open from Aug. 12 to Sept. 12.
