Seattle Times news partner Magnolia Voice has posted about work being done at the Ballard Locks to reinstall the tubes used by smolts returning to the ocean:
Visitors to the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks will be able to see the smolt passage flumes on the spillway again. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is reinstalling the four flumes in spillway gates 4 and 5 this week to help juvenile salmon and steelhead move through the project quickly and safely.”
