City of Tacoma Green River Water Supply Habitat Conservation Plan

The City of Tacoma Public Utilities Departments completed a habitat conservation plan for its operations at Howard Hansen Dam on the Green River in Washington State, in July 2001. A separate ESA Section 7 consultation with the Army Corps of Engineers for operating the dam was completed in October 2000. The activities covered by the HCP include water withdrawals, operating fish bypass facilities, watershed forest management activities, fish habitat restoration projects, and potential restoration of anadromous fish above the dam.

The habitat conservation plan and associated documents are very large files. Please e-mail wcr.webcontent@noaa.gov to request a CD of these documents, and include your name and full mailing address.
