Section 7. Abstract


The Model Watershed Project (MWP) was initiated by the Northwest Power Planning Council in 1992 to improve chinook salmon and steelhead habitat in the Lemhi, Pahsimeroi, and East Fork of the Salmon River watersheds. These watersheds provide habitat for approximately 75% of the upper Salmon River anadromous fish. The goal of the project is to maintain, enhance, and restore anadromous and resident fish habitat while also achieving and maintaining a balance between resource protection and resource use on a holistic watershed management basis. This project is administered through The Idaho Soil Conservation Commission and is coordinated through the Idaho Model Watershed Project Advisory and Technical Committee in conjunction with the Lemhi and Custer Soil and Water Conservation Districts and various local, state and federal agencies. Additionally, the MWP provides a foundation for other groups such as the Lemhi County Riparian Habitat Conservation Agreement, Custer County Salmon River Conservation Plan, Idaho DEQ Basin and Watershed Advisory Groups, Bureau of Reclamation Water Conservation Program, IDFG screen program and others. The goal of the project is to maintain, enhance, and restore anadromous and resident fish habitat while also achieving and maintaining a balance between resource protection and resource use on a holistic watershed management basis. Specific habitat goals, as outlined in the Model Watershed Plan, (1995). The coordination and administration currently funded by BPA is essential to the continuation of habitat and migration enhancement project work in the Upper Salmon River Basin along with being the glue which holds the community together with responsible resource management. This work can only happen with the cooperation of local communities, SWCD’s, private landowners, NRCS, IDFG, BLM, USFWS, BoR, USFS, Tribes, NMFS, BPA and others.

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Adequate after revision
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
The original proposal was poor, giving inadequate description of benefits to fish and wildlife. The revised proposal described monitoring in greater depth, but still has only marginally adequate description of methods. 9202603 and 9401700 are linked and should be combined for project review.
