Section 7. Abstract


The Fifteenmile Creek Habitat Improvement Project is an ongoing “on the ground” operation & maintenance project. With funding requested for FY 1999 the project intent is to maintain all habitat treatment measures installed in the Fifteenmile Basin to date. This will be accomplished by continuing to maintain the 100 plus miles riparian protection fences and the existing 900 fish habitat structures. This project will continue to address factors limiting production as long as it is given the needed funding to properly maintain it. Continue to provide technical assistance to local landowners and other agency personnel doing fish habitat restoration work in the Fifteenmile Creek Basin. We will attempt to leverage BPA funding to aquire additional funding from other granting sources to accomplish additional habitat restoration projects within the Fifteenmile Creek Basin. We request BPA funding for this operation and maintenance project for three years. This will allow us to manage the project in a more effective manner. The goal of the implementation phase was to provide improved fish habitat, increased habitat diversity, increased stream shading, reduced water temperatures, reduced sedimentation, provide for unobstructed fish passage, and screen all irrigation withdrawals. The goal of the project is to improve natural production of the eastern most run of wild winter steelhead in the Columbia River Basin. This is being accomplished in the Fifteenmile Creek Basin, under the Columbia River basin Fish and Wildlife program, Measures 7.6, 7.6A.1, 7.6B.1, 7.6B.2, 7.6B.3, 7.6B.4, 7.6C. This project operates under the assumption that the Fifteenmile Basin will never again be pristine because of human alterations to the ecosystem but, can still be very productive in terms of fish production. This can only happen if we continue to address the factors limiting production basin wide. Cooperators in the habitat enhancement project include 70 private landowners, USFS, WCSWCD, NRCS, NMFS, and OWR. OWT, Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon, USFWS, and the Fifteenmile Creek Watershed Council. Habitat improvements made under this project include: ? 100 miles riparian fencing constructed ? 45 miles of stream protected ? 900 fish habitat structures constructed ? 6 spring developments constructed ? 6 pump screens installed ? 2 rotary drum screens installed ? 3 fish passage projects constructed Stream temperature data and photpoint documentation are being collected throughout the basin. In addition there was a FY 1998 proposal submitted to evaluate the effects of habitat work conducted in the Fifteenmile Creek Basin. Implementation of habitat treatment measures are expected to be completed in FY 1998, The operation and maintenance phase is expected to start in FY 1999 and continue through 2013.

CBFWA: Watershed Technical Group Comments Recommendation:
Pass (Fundable)
May 13, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Technical Issue: Very concerned that the costs are excessive for operations and maintenance activities only.

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
May 13, 1998
1999 2000 2001
$220,000 $220,000 $220,000

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
This proposal is well written. It includes continuing operation and maintenance of nine hundred in-stream structures, but the proposal does not reference a well-known report that was critical of the use of in-stream structures. The proposal should show the relationship to project 9146 and should present the results of temperature monitoring.
