Section 7. Abstract


The Hellsgate Project has been approved as a wildlife mitigation project to address adverse' impacts caused by the federal hydropower system on the Columbia River, specifically Chief Joseph and Grand Coulee Dams. The Hellsgate Project is funded by the BPA and carried out in cooperation with WDFW, NBS, NRCS, BIA, CBFWA, and NPPC. The Project is consistent with Section 11 of the NPPC's Fish and Wildlife Program of 1994 addresses mitigation for losses due to the Federal Columbia River Power System. The Project contains' 16,652 acres acquired for wildlife mitigation. A programmatic management'plan was developed to protect, manage, and enhance critical winter range for mule deer and elk as well as shrub-steppe habitat for sharp-tailed grouse and other shrub-steppe obligate species. The Habitat Evaluation Procedure (HEP) was used to establish baseline conditions and to monitor habitat conditions over time for mitigation crediting. A site specific management plan is in the draft stage and will define and schedule protection and enhancement activities, monitoring and evaluation criteria, and budget requirements.

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
If these are both [9013 and 199204800] part of the tribal habitat mitigation project, they should be listed together. There is a programmatic need for these projects, but the proposals do not make clear how they would be implemented. There is no description of how lands will be prioritized for purchase. There is no description of long-range goals and how these can be evaluated. Conservation easement requirements are not noted.
