Environmental Assessment for Ouray NFH available for public comment

The Service is proposing to construct a new raceway, settling basin and discharge system to enhance operations on Ouray National Fish Hatchery (NFH). The system is intended to enhance production and processing of endangered fish species including the razorback sucker, bonytail, humpback chub, and Colorado pikeminnow, while rerouting discharge water back into the Green river.

The comment period will close on June 20, 2024. Please email comments to zane_olsen@fws.gov.
