The San Joaquin River Restoration Program (SJRRP)
is a comprehensive long-term effort to restore flows to the San
Joaquin River from Friant Dam to the confluence of Merced River and restore
a self-sustaining Chinook salmon fishery in the river while reducing or avoiding adverse water supply impacts from restoration flows. More...
The first water releases from Friant Dam in support of the SJRRP, called Interim Flows, began October 1, 2009. Interim Flow releases began October 1, 2010, for Water Year 2011. Visit the Interim Flows and Flow Monitoring pages for more information.Photos
