ECORP Biologists Fill Their Nets During San Joaquin River Fish Rescue

ECORP prepared the EIR and helped Madera County acquire all of the regulatory permits for the Common Diversion Facility Project located within the San Joaquin River in Madera County, California. The Project involved the replacement of seven river intakes with one single intake pipe that includes a state-of-the-art fish screen. As a part of the effort, ECORP Senior Fish Biologists Brian Zitt and Tom Scofield conducted a fish rescue within the river, while a small area was dewatered to make way for the Phase 1 intake infrastructure. During the effort, over 1,200 individuals, consisting of primarily native Kern brook lamprey (Lampetra hubbsi) and partially armored threespine stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus microcephalus)were safely captured and relocated to a section of the river outside of the Project area.
The Project is a two-year effort, so come 2021, ECORP will have its seine nets at the ready to relocate more fish.
