Abstract This document addresses the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed action which includes the construction of fish passage at the Frankenmuth Dam on the Cass River in Saginaw County, Frankenmuth, Michigan. The proposed action is being accomplished under Section 506 (Great Lakes Fishery and Ecosystem Restoration) of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2000 (42 U.S.C. 1962d-22(c), PL 106-541), as amended. Alternatives considered include: a fish bypass channel, a rock ramp, a spiral fish ladder, dam removal, and no federal action. The preferred alternative is construction of a rock ramp starting approximately 350 feet downstream of the Frankenmuth Dam and creating rock weirs and resting pools along a gradual slope (approximately 2.9%) up to and encompassing the existing dams footprint. The rock ramp would provide passage for fish species targeted for recovery in the Great Lakes (i.e., Walleye).
