St Mary’s Conveyance Repair Begins in Earnest

After 2-plus decades of study and band-aid repairs, the St Mary’s Conveyance system will finally get some serious federal funding to replace the dam system near Babb.

We’ll talk with Steve Darlinton of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and learn more about replacing the St Mary’s Diversion Dam in its entirety and improving fish passage.
