Kelt and Juvenile passage at Bonneville

Interesting and positive news from Bonneville dam. A 50 million dollar retrofitted side gate designed to facilitate easier passage for down stream kelts went into operation on April 3rd. The project comes as scientists are increasingly acknowledging the importance of repeat spawning in steelhead and the complete lack of passage accomodations for spawned out fish in the Columbia hydrosystem.
