Summary: The proposal includes the installation oftwo fish screens. Screen #1 will be a new installation and screen #2 will be installed in place ofa previously existing screen. Both proposed screen installations will occur in the vicinity ofthe Heppsie Mountain Rd. bridge crossing over the North Fork Little Butte Creek (T36S-R03E, SE ~ sec. 31, see map below). Location ofscreen #1 is proposed to be approx. 40 feet upstream from the bridge, on river left. A piped ditch would be retrofitted with the screen to divert entrained fish from the diversion and back into the creek. Screen #2 would be located approx. 0.25 miles downstream from the bridge on river right, on an open ditch in place ofa previously existing fish screen. The locations ofscreen #1 and #2 will be referred to as sites #1 and #2, respectively.
