Pulse Flow for Salmon

September 6, 2017

A pulse flow intended to mimic the natural hyrdrograph of the river was recently made from Friant Dam in order to assist 120 adult spring-run Chinook salmon with access to available habitat for spawning. Approximately 1,250 acre-feet of the 2017 Restoration Flow allocation was used for the pulse flow which began on Wednesday, September 6, 2017 and concluded on Monday, September 11, 2017.
