Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

Lapwai Creek has historically supported A-run Steelhead and resident trout populations but because of commercial, agricultural, natural events and transportation activities it has become a low functioning stream. Highway 95 south parallels its channel causing the stream to be channelized for more than 10 miles. Stream reaches that are not channelized were heavily damaged in the 1996 flood event, which caused riparian vegetation to up-root, gravel’s were deposited, stream banks eroded and stream was forced out of its original stream channel. Following the flood, dozers and backhoes were allowed to enter the stream channel without restriction or regard for fisheries habitat protection. The flood in combination with stream excavation, intended to abate future flood impacts, have compounded the damage done to fisheries habitat.
