The method of transporting downstream migrant fish from a forebay collecting device to tail-water by means of an open flume does not create damage to fish serious enough to cause death. However, as the tests herein described could not involve asse...

Selective opening of the Patea hydroelectric dam spillway gates was examined for its potential to provide safe downstream passage for sexually mature (silver) eels in New Zealand. During autumn 2000, one of the spillway gates at the 82-m high Pate...

The provision of spillways in the structure of a dam enables proper disposal of flood water in excess of the reservoir capacity, and regulates the energy of flowing water downstream. Some spillways dissipate energy in the form of ski-jump which le...

The design of economical, downstream-passage facilities for Atlantic salmon (S. salar) kelts and smolts at hydroelectric dams often includes a free fall to the tailrace. To determine the height of fall which could be tolerated by this species with...

A 3-year study was conducted to determine mortality rates for downstream migrant salmonids passing through spillways or turbines at McNary Dam. Mortalities were determined by releasing marked fish into the exit under study (spillway or turbine) an...
