The intake would provide water to the Oregon DFW owned Clackamas Hatchery located outside of the project boundary on Dog Creek, a tributary of the Clackamas River. The intake would provide a continuous gravity fed 50 cubic feet per second (approximately 32 million gallons per day) from Estacada Lake, to the fish hatchery. The intake system would be located within the project boundary approximately 250 feet upstream of the River Mill Dam on the south side of the forebay and consist of a dual-cylindrical intake screen, track system for deploying the intake screens into the reservoir, control building, and conveyance pipes. Project water routed to the hatchery would be returned to the Clackamas River via Dog Creek, downstream of the project.
