Corps seeks comments on Fall Creek fish facility

Published Nov. 12, 2014

PORTLAND, Ore. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is seeking public comments on its draft environmental assessment of the proposed Fall Creek Dam and Reservoir Adult Fish Facility Upgrade. 

The Corps is proposing to upgrade the existing Fall Creek Dam fish collection facility to enhance upriver passage of adult Upper Willamette River Chinook, steelhead and other native species. The preferred alternative provides volitional swim-up capacity, the ability to hold fish, and water-to-water transfer, all of which reduce stress and injury and improve fish survival. 

The draft EA is available on Portland District’s website at

Questions or comments regarding the draft EA should refer to public notice number CENWP-PM-E-14-13 and be directed to or the address below by Dec. 12, 2014:
District Engineer
U.S. Army Corps of Engineer District, Portland
Attn:  CENWP-PM-E/Kristine Lightner
P.O. Box 2946
Portland, Oregon  97208-2946

The Fall Creek Dam and Reservoir Adult Fish Facility Upgrade is part of the Corps’ broader effort to implement the provisions of the 2008 Willamette Biological Opinions. For more information, please visit
