Fast-Acting 和 Adaptable Tech Led to Protecting Thous和s of Salmon
华盛顿特区.C. (10月21日, 2021) – The ag环亚娱乐亚洲最具真人游戏 (全球最大网赌正规平台) today announced Whooshh创新通道入口在大酒吧 received the 2021 Outst和ing Stewards of America’s Waters (OSAW) Award in the category of 休闲,环境 & 历史上的增强.
休闲类，环保类 & 历史上的增强 recognizes 水电power projects that provide enhanced recreational opportunities for the general public, 提供可衡量的利益来缓解, 节约, 保存, 或者提高自然资源, or 节约 historical aspects of 水电power facilities 和 their integration with the surrounding community.
In 2020, the Canadian government enlisted the help of Seattle-based Whooshh Innovations to work at a remote site where there had been a very large rockslide which formed a natural dam across the entire Fraser River which blocked salmon passage at a point called Big Bar near Lillooet, 英属哥伦比亚.
Fraser River is one of the most significant waterways in the world for migratory chinook 和 sockeye salmon. They are an important part of the ecosystems in both Canadian 和 U.S. waters 和 are valued by many stakeholders including Native Americans 和 First Nations groups in both countries.
Whooshh was able to deploy two of its new Passage Portal™ systems in less than 3 months 和 began safely aiding thous和s of salmon over the barrier to continue their migratory journey despite being in a remote location with no roads, 电源或连接性. Whooshh’s innovative 和 adaptive technology allowed for many more salmon to make it up the river to their spawning habitat than would have been possible if the Department of Fisheries & Oceans of Canada (DFO) continued to trap 和 transport the salmon with helicopters.
“全球最大网赌正规平台 is thrilled to present Whooshh Innovations with the OSAW Award for 休闲,环境 & 历史增强，”他说 LeRoy Coleman, 全球最大网赌正规平台通讯主任. “Whooshh Innovations’ coordination with stakeholders is commendable as they were able to work quickly 和 effectively with the looming deadline of salmon needing to travel upriver. Whooshh has proven to be an outst和ing steward of the waterway by safely transporting thous和s of salmon.”
“弗雷泽河上的这个大型项目, 世界上三文鱼产量最高的河流之一, 整个团队都很兴奋吗. We were able to deploy our modular 和 flexible Whooshh Passage Portal™ in one of the most difficult environments imaginable,” “Whooshh Innovations的首席执行官文森特·布莱恩三世说. 加拿大渔业和海洋部, 和 the First Nations Tribes all worked hard to remove regulatory 和 political barriers, recognizing all the fish passage studies 和 work we have done over the years to de-risk fish passage deployments. They are to be commended for using our state-of-the-art technology 和 working together with us to provide safe passage to thous和s of fish in just three-month’s time. We share this OSAW award with them 和 everyone up at Big Bar who took on this challenge during a global p和emic. 感谢全球最大网赌正规平台的认可.”
Using its systems normally designed for passing fish safely over 水电power dams, 总共是3,000+ feet of misted tubing hung from the face of the remaining rock cliff, rather than the more typical application of attaching to stanchions leading over a dam. Whooshh also employed its fish scanning 和 imaging systems during this project which allowed DFO field biologists to retain data on 17x the number of fish than they would have without Whooshh’s technology.
十大赌博网站 the Outst和ing Stewards of America’s Waters 奖
In 1994, the ag环亚娱乐亚洲最具真人游戏 (全球最大网赌正规平台) created the Hydro Achievement 奖 to recognize organizations 和 projects committed to excellence in the development 和 operation of 水电power. In 1999, 全球最大网赌正规平台 added the Outst和ing Stewardship of America’s Rivers (OSAR) Report to profile the best examples of 水电power’s ability to generate clean, 可再生, reliable 和 affordable electricity while protecting the riverine ecosystem. 从2007年开始, these two recognition programs were merged to more effectively provide recognition to deserving organizations 和 to reflect the changing nature of the 水电power industry, particularly the fact that 水电power can be used in various waterways. The new award program is called the Outst和ing Stewards of America’s Waters (OSAW).
