Advancing Innovative and Comprehensive Projects to Benefit Salmon

Sacramento Valley Water Users have completed dozens of projects in recent years to benefit fish. From restoration of spawning habitat to fish screens to fish food, water districts and agencies have been focused on implementing innovative and comprehensive projects. The visual element to many of these projects, as well, hearing directly from the partners involved, helps put the size and scope of the projects into perspective. Listed below are some examples of those projects with links to videos detailing the projects.
