Crystal Springs Hatchery Program Termination Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)
Document Number: 2019-24904
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-11-18
Agency: Bonneville Power Administration, Department of Energy
This notice advises the public that BPA is terminating the preparation of the Crystal Springs Hatchery Program EIS (DOE/EIS-0500) that was announced in the Notice of Intent in the Federal Register on May 27, 2014. This EIS was considering BPA's decision whether to fund the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes of the Fort Hall Reservation of Idaho's (Shoshone-Bannock Tribes) proposal to construct and operate a hatchery for spring/summer Chinook salmon for release in the Salmon River subbasin and for Yellowstone cutthroat trout for release in the Upper Snake River subbasin on the Fort Hall Reservation. The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes are developing an alternate implementation strategy to address site conditions and BPA would consider these proposals in the future.
