Just got off the phone with Leon Alexander, spokesman for the Norfork National Fish Hatchery, and he had an update about the progress of the installations of the Diffuser units.
(To read more about the Diffusers and what they do, please read our previous post…)
As of December, there are 16 Diffusers that are completed and ready to install.
The holdup for final installation was a shortage of 6″ PVC pipe and 6″ PVC elbows.
Finally, the parts have arrived and the first 16 diffusers are scheduled to be installed after the first of the year.
8 more diffusers (for a total of 24) are still scheduled to be built and installed sometime after the first of the year. The materials for these last diffusers have already been ordered.
Installation of these diffusers will help ensure our trout grow fast and are as healthy as they can be so they can be put in the river for YOU!
If you haven’t stopped by and checked out the hatchery, make it a point to do so on your next visit to the White River! The hatchery is only 20 minutes from His Place Resort, and you can get a fun & educational tour, and see where our trout come from!Your White River Trout Diva His Place Resort 866-435-6535 (toll free) mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.HisPlaceResort.net Become a Fan on Facebook http://www.Facebook.com/HisPlaceResort Get our Tweets on Twitter http://www.Twitter.com/HisPlaceResort Read the Trout Diva Blogs at http://WhiteRiverTroutDiva.net
