In 1998 the Douglas County PUD in Washington began a multi-year survival study to determine the survival rate of fish passing through their hydroelectric project (Wells Dam) on the Columbia River. Biomark performed the PIT-tagging, fish husbandry, fish release, data collection and reporting during the three year study. The results from the study exceeded the 93% juvenile project survival standards that were set.
In 2010 Douglas County conducted a study to confirm that survival through the Wells Project for yearling Chinook and steelhead remains equal to or above the 93% juvenile project survival standard. To achieve this goal, Douglas Co. PUD requested Biomark to provide services in five portions of the project.
