Section 7. Abstract


a. Funding needed to complete project is $307,042 dollars. The ability of the USFS to implement this project has been limited by available funding. USFS has funded, completed portions of the project with watershed improvement dollars. The remaining work cannot be funded with watershed dollars. b. The Kline Mountain road is identified in numerous environmental documents as a sediment source into the South Fork Salmon River (SFSR). The purpose of this project is to reduce current surface erosion from roads and prevent sediment delivery to the SFSR. Currently, 426 tons/year of sediment is eroding and being stored within the project area. Approximately, 0.6 ton/year is actually being delivered to the SFSR. c. The benefit of this project is improvement of critical spawning habitat for federally listed species, Chinook salmon. Though stabilization of these roads and restoration of wetlands, water quality will be improved. d. Road stabilization work would be accomplished using road treatment methods to reduce erosion and stabilize the road systems. Accepted and effective practices to stabilize cut/fill slopes and road surfaces include: Hillfaker structures and bioengineering techniques. Application of gravel on road surfaces is documented as 92% effective in reducing erosion. Complete obliteration of the #490 road would restore a natural wetland, reduce erosion and runoff. Reconstruction of the #427 road would improve road stability and safety. e. & f. The project would be implemented the summer/fall 1998. Stabilizing Kline Mountain (#474), Stolle Meadows (#427), and obliteration of the (#490) roads, including wetland restoration would reduce stored and total sediment by 16 and 24 percent respectively. A monitoring plan is developed to evaluate: project implementation, sediment reduction treatments, and vegetation success.
