|Description||Under their Ecology-granted Water Quality Certification, the Grant County Public Utility District (PUD) is required to develop and implement a White Sturgeon Recovery Plan, in consultation with the Priest Rapids Fish Forum. The overall goal of the plan is to increase the natural reproduction of white sturgeon to achieve a population that is appropriate for the available habitat, while supporting recreational and tribal harvest. As part of the PUD’s efforts to restore these fish, more than 9,000 were released into the mid-Columbia River at the end of April 2011.|
