Officials at the Bureau of Reclamation say that while bypassing water around the Trinity Dam generators cost the district money, it was done to help fish.

At the Nov. 10 board meeting of the Trinity Public Utility District, manager Paul Hauser explained the Bureau of Reclamation had been letting some water go around the generators, forgoing significant income from the generation and sale of power. Hauser said while the BOR bypasses the water to meet its river temperature goals, he was skeptical that the small change in temperature benefits fish at all.
