Abstract:

Modifications of the flow control sections and counting stations of the Bradford Island and Washington Shore fish ladders at Bonneville Dam were necessary to accommodate rapid pool changes which will result from fluctuating discharges caused by power peaking at hydroelectric projects upstream. Fishway operation for the extreme flood control pool range from elev 70.0 to elev 82.5 feet above mean sea level was considered. The normal range for design was between elev 72.0 and 80.0. A portion of the forebay, the exit control section, the counting station, the supply channel for auxiliary water, and typical sections of each ladder were studied in a 114-scale model.
