Description
Summary:This study describes how the Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project would affect flow and sediment transport and fish habitat in the Susitna River. Construction and operation of the Project will likely affect flow, surface water elevation, sediment load and transport, and water depth in the mainstem channel, side channels, sloughs, and off-channel habitat features both upstream and downstream of the Watana Dam site. The goal of this study is to evaluate the potential effects of Project-induced changes in flow and water surface elevation on free access of fish into, within, and out of suitable habitats in the upper Susitna River (the inundation zone above the Watana Dam site) and the middle Susitna River (Watana Dam site to the confluence of Chulitna and Talkeetna rivers). The study area includes the Susitna River between the Talkeetna area to to upper extent of the proposed Watana Reservoir maximum pool (project river mile 232.5). This report describes Alaska Energy Authority's progress in implementing the study during the year 2014, and is intended to supplement Part A of the Initial Study Report published in June 2014. The maps show locations of beaver dams (only maps 1-25 between Talkeenta and and project river mile 149), instream flow focus areas, and the riverine physiography study area.
