Stop-gap efforts buy Cole Rivers Hatchery time

Cole Rivers Hatchery technicians are jerry-rigging a new water-delivery system to its hatch house in hopes of avoiding a repeat of last winter’s massive die-off of Rogue River spring chinook salmon eggs from contaminated water.

The string of new plastic water piping is seen as a stop-gap effort while waiting for a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plan to fix the water system and other worn-out elements of the 46-year-old facility on the upper Rogue near Trail.
