Abstract : As the limited water resources of the western United States are developed for agricultural and industrial uses, there is an ever increasing need to utilize waste water to its fullest potential. This report describes one example where waste water from an energy development site (coal mine operation) was used to enhance the fisheries of an adjacent reservoir. The details of this report provide an example of what considerations may be necessary for similar projects; illustrate potential problem areas in the planning, construction and operation of such a project; and stimulate ideas for developing other innovative uses of waste water for fish and wildlife habitat enhancement.
