Section 7. Abstract


The CTUIR is proposing to continue protecting, enhancing, and mitigating wildlife and wildlife habitat impacted by construction of the McNary Hydroelectric Power Project. Later phases of the project contemplate potential additions of adjacent BLM and private lands to the project. Primary objectives of the project proposal are to protect and mitigate wildlife and wildlife habitat. The project is located within the McNary Project area and provides a unique opportunity to mitigate wildlife habitat losses in-kind and on-site where the original inundation impacts from hydropower development occurred. Key habitat located on the Wanaket Wildlife Area includes upland shrub steppe and riparian habitat. The project includes habitat for eight (8) McNary target wildlife mitigation species including: spotted sandpiper (Actitis macularia); Canada goose (Branta canadensis); yellow warbler (Dendraica petechia); mink (Mustela vison); western meadowlark (Sturnella neglecta); California quail (Lophortyx californicus); mallard (Anas platyrhynchgos); and downy woodpecker (Picoides pubescens. Wanaket consists of approximately 2,750 acres and could provide an estimated 2,334 Habitat Units (HU’s) of protection credit and 2,495 Habitat Units of enhancement credit against BPA’s Hydro related debt. Monitoring and evaluation of habitats is based on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Habitat Evaluation Procedures (USFWS, 1980).

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
The proposal does not adequately describe technical justification, monitoring or methods. The seasonal recharge of the wetlands appears to be a worthwhile goal.
