Friant Salmon Hatchery Plans Are Taking Shape
Draft Environmental Report Issued For Project
Plans for a key hatchery facility, considered vital in the effort to restore a salmon run in the San Joaquin River, have progressed to the environmental review stage.
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) earlier this month released a draft environmental impact report (DEIR) for a new hatchery being called the Salmon Conservation and Research Facility (SCARF) to assist with the restoration of San Joaquin River salmon runs.
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation has released a final environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact in order to fund operations and maintenance of the new facility.
