San Joaquin River Restoration Program - Arroyo Canal Fish Screen & Sack Dam Fish Passage Project
Type: 
Ad Hoc Activity
As part of the San Joaquin River Restoration Program, the Arroyo Canal Fish Screen and Sack Dam Fish Passage Project implements two of the highest priority projects identified in the 2006 Settlement. The project includes a fish screen on the Arroyo Canal to prevent entrainment of juvenile Chinook salmon in the canal and modifications to Sack Dam to allow for fish passage around the structure. The project furthers the Department of the Interiors efforts to restore Chinook salmon and other fish to the San Joaquin River. Arroyo Canal and Sack Dam are owned and operated by Henry Miller Reclamation District #2131. The dam and canal are the sole diversion and conveyance facilities for the District which provides water to approximately 47,000 acres of highly productive agricultural lands in the San Joaquin Valley, along with moving water to federal and state wildlife refuges and private duck clubs.
