Another waiver request - ODFW seeks public comment on passage waiver request for Coos Bay North Bend Water Board:
Waivers are on an existing dam on Lower Pony Creek and amendment to an existing waiver for a second dam on Upper Pony Creek; both near Coos Bay. Mitigation involved.
Summary judgement would be that mitigation effort on Matson Creek [with a fish presence] would be a 'net benefit' over providing ANY fish passage at Pony Creek. Seems like ANY improvement is a better step for overall but you can make the call....and let ODFW hear what you come up with!
