This project is ongoing and is scheduled to conclude in late 2010. The project included conducting an R2Cross analysis on Castle Creek, fish population sampling, and boreal toad studies. The objective of the study was to evaluate potential impacts from the proposed Castle Creek hydroelectric plant.
Developed a two-dimensional (2-D) hydraulic and habitat modeling study to provide an evaluation of flow-related imacs to rainbow trout, brown trout, longnose sucker and longnose dace at 12 study sites representing over 80 river miles in the Cache La Poudre Basin including the main tributaries, the North Fork Cache La Poudre and South Fork Cache La Poudre.
Developed a two-dimensional (2-D) hydraulic and habitat modeling study to provide an evaluation of flow-related impacs to rainbow and brown trout in the Colorado River, near Granby, Colorado. The study consisted of two sites that represented 50 miles of riverine habitat.
An instream flow study using the instream flow incremental methodology was applied to Joe Wright Creek in Colorado, a headwater tributary of the Cache La Poudre River. The study was conducted to develop minimum flow requirements for U.S. Forest Service special use permits. The study involved site selection, habitat mapping, and habitat time series to determine both with and without project habitat availability information.

Developed a two-dimensional (2-D) hydraulic and habitat modeling study design to provide an evaluation of flow-related impacts to endangered bull trout and westslope cutthroat trout in the Flathead River upstream of Flathead Lake, Montana.

The objective of this study was to document the habitat use and movement of Colorado pikeminnow in the Yampa River during summer and fall base flow periods. Northern pike and channel catfish habitat use and movement were also documented during this study.

A habitat use study was conducted on endangered Colorado pikeminnow in the San Juan River, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah. Adult Colorado pikeminnow were implanted with radio transmitters and followed to obtain intensive habitat use data on a daily basis. The study was conducted during summer peak flow and spawning season to document use of potential spawning areas in the San Juan River.

The objective of this study was to determine appropriate approach and implement an instream flow study for 60 miles of Central Platte River from approximately Chapman to Columbus, Nebraska. This study consisted of two phases. Phase 1 was the determination of the appropriate approach. Phase 2 was implementation of the recommended approach to develop instream flow recommendations for the 60 mile study reach.
