Bureau of Reclamation and California Department of Water Resources have prepared a final environmental impact statement/environmental impact report for the implementation of actions I.6.1 and I.7 identified in the National Marine Fisheries Service’s 2009 Biological Opinion and Conference Opinion on the Long-term Operation of the Central Valley Project and State Water Project Reasonable and Prudent Alternative. These actions consist of salmonid habitat restoration efforts within the lower Sacramento River basin and fish passage through the Yolo Bypass. The Fremont Weir Adult Fish Passage Modification Project was part of the original Yolo Bypass Salmonid Habitat Restoration and Fish Passage Project and was identified to be included in California EcoRestore in 2015.
