Abstract:

Model investigations of fish-passing facilities for McNary Dam were concerned with the probable effects of the various structures on fish migrations. Currents in the river adjacent to the fishway entrances and powerhouse collection systems, flow conditions within the fish ladder structures, and pressures within the auxiliary water supply conduits and pipe lines were of particular interest. Seven models were used during the investigations.
