Box Canyon project moves forward

JWF was awarded the Box Canyon Hydroelectric Project Upstream Fish Passage Facility project in March 2016. Located near Ione, WA, the project is close to the Canadian border on the  Pend Oreille River. Constrained by in-water work windows, high flows, fish migration and dam powerhouse outages, the project will eventually provide safe and timely upstream passage for Bull Trout, Westslope Cutthroat Trout and Mountain Whitefish. The trap-and-haul facility includes a fish ladder, auxiliary water supply pump station and facility water supply, pre-sort holding pool, fish lock and elevated sorting facility.
