Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Alleviate Sediment Input from Road Sources in the Squaw and Papoose Creek Watersheds. a. Coordinate with the Clearwater National Forest (CNF) on 12 miles of road to be obliterated.
. b. Obliterate roads.
. c. Revegetate obliterated roads with native plant species.
. d. Monitor and evaluate obliterated roads for blow-outs, vegetation growth, and soil stabilization.
. e. Complete report on effects of road obliteration on the affected watershed over time.
2. Abate potential for immediate sediment and delivery. a. Coordinate with Clearwater National Forest on areas of deposited sediment within riparian areas that have the potential for adding sediment in the near term.
. b. Construct sediment fences, mulch and re-seed sediment areas to stabilize soils.
3. Stabilize existing landslides. a. Coordinate with Clearwater National Forest on landslide areas needing stabilization
. b. Stabilize landslides by installing check dams, mulching and re-vegetating.
4. Operation and maintanence (O&M) of sediment fences, check dams, and the re-vegetation associated with them that was completed in previous years. a. Observe and evaluate the sediment fences, check dams, and associated re-vegetation for any problems that will discourage them from accomplishing their original goals.
. b. Perform required work to enable sediment fences and check dams to accomplish their original goals.

Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

Protecting and restoring the Squaw and Papoose Creek Watersheds to assist in increasing anadromous fish populations is the overall goal of this project. We will achieve this working within an overall watershed approach, completing four objectives in many areas of the watersheds. The first objective is road obliteration, which is a priority activity within the watersheds to reduce sediment delivery into streams. Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) will be completed and a report produced researching how road obliteration has decreased sediment loads into the streams over time. The second objective is abating the potential for immediate sediment delivery into streams from identified areas of deposited sediment within riparian areas. Stabilizing landslides is the third objective to reduce potential for contributing sediment. The fourth objective in the proposal is operation & maintenance (O&M) of structures constructed in previous years in the effort to reduce sediment into steams. These structures include check dams, sediment fences, and the re-vegetation associated with them. The expected outcome of our work will decrease sediment loads into streams and tributaries within the watersheds, which will in turn increase available fish and wildlife habitat, assist in enlarging their populations, and protect Nez Perce tribal treaties and culture.


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

Date:
May 13, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Management Issue: Management flag – concern about the "in-lieu" issue and the delegation of funding responsibility. The Forest Service should fund some of this work because their activities caused many of the problems.

Technical Issue: Explain how placing logs and backfill reduces surface erosion.

Technical Issue: Explain how the action proposed by this technique will not cause another failure?

Technical Issue: Explain how the costs are not excessive for road obliteration.

Adequate

[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
These proposals (199607703 and 199607707) adequately describe the problems and the likely benefits to fish and wildlife. However, each also has some negative aspects, as detailed below. The proposals do not tell how reduction in sediment delivery will be measured. BPA should look at the budget. Is this cost sharing for BPA when Forest Service and NPT do the work and BPA is the funding source for both. It appears that in 1998, $109,328 will be spent to obliterate 10 miles of road. This is $10,900 per mile or 4 times as much as in project #9607706 (Lolo Watershed). Why the disparity?
