Section 7. Abstract


The goal of the Willamette Basin Mitigation Program is to cooperatively develop and implement measures to mitigate for wildlife habitat losses associated with the construction of the Willamette basin federally licensed hydro-electric dams and facilities. While implementing easements, acquisitions, management plans and enhancement activities designed to achieve the Council’s mitigation target species and habitat goals maintain and improve water quality and quantity, habitat connectivity, integrity and functionality, biodiversity and overall ecosystem health. Overall Objectives: Through the use of Restorative Ecology, Conservation Biology, Landscape Ecology, and passive restoration techniques implement approximately 5-10 mitigation projects in the Willamette basin with the expected minimum gain of 500 - 1500 Habitat Units (HUS) each year. These habitat “gains” will be applied to each of the hydro-electric facilities based upon habitat type and location. Calculate baseline, actual, and future HUs through the use of HEP field sampling, GIS data collection and analysis, and other Monitoring and Evaluation techniques accepted by the Council, BPA, and CBFWA’s Wildlife Working Group. Provide information, findings, and new techniques about the project through multiple means including reports, presentations, digital data and maps, papers, and “over-the-Internet”.

Reviews and Recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

CBFWA: Watershed Technical Group Comments Recommendation:
Return to Sponsor for Revision
May 13, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Technical Issue: Need more detail on the existing resource condition and critical limiting factors, measurable objectives, and strategic actions and expected results for achieving those objectives, and the methods for monitoring to determine if expected results are being achieved and how the project will be adaptively managed based on the monitoring.

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
May 13, 1998
1999 2000 2001
$400,000 $200,000 $200,000
20% reduction in all tasks

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Inadequate proposal, adequate purpose
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
The proposal is weak on objectives, methods, and explanation of the project’s history. They do not detail the methods to achieve mitigation. The proposal is very vague.
