EA-1913: Preliminary Environmental Assessment

Springfield Sockeye Hatchery Program, Springfield, Bingham County, Idaho

This EA evaluates the potential environmental impacts of a proposal by BPA to fund the modification of an existing IDFG trout hatchery near Springfield, Idaho, to provide a facility that would be capable of rearing up to 1 million Snake River sockeye salmon juveniles. Modifications would include demolishing several existing structures, constructing new hatchery facilities in the same footprint, constructing three new residences for hatchery personnel northwest of the hatchery site, and constructing up to six pumps at existing wellheads and a piping system to convey water to hatchery facilities.
