Tracy Fish Collection Facility Improvement - The Tracy Fish Collection Facility (TFCF) is a complex system of louvers, bypasses and holding tanks operated to protect and salvage fish from the nearby C.W. “Bill” Jones Pumping Plant. The facility collects Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta fish species as a primary mitigation feature for the pumping plant and returns them to the Delta. Reclamation awarded a $4.27 million contract to improve operations and protection of the fish and the work was recently completed at the facility.

Watch this animation explaining how the John W. Keys III Pump-Generating Plant works! The Pump-Generating Plant at Grand Coulee Dam was completed in 1973. It contains 12 pumps that lift water from the Columbia River up the hillside to a canal that flows into Banks Lake, which provides irrigation water to over 670,000 acres in the Columbia Basin Project. Six of the pumps can be reversed to generate hydroelectricity when demand exists. More information on Grand Coulee Dam:
