Section 7. Abstract


The goal of this project, which is an extension of a larger cooperative restoration project with the Nez Perce Tribe (BPA #9607700 ), is to restore the Squaw and Papoose Creek Watersheds to assist in increasing water quality and anadromous and native fish populations. Due to logistical restrictions, the Cost Share Agreement with the Nez Perce Tribe is limited to 12 miles of obliteration. However, we have identified an additional eight miles of excess road that could be treated by the Clearwater National Forest to further meet the goals set forth in the Nez Perce Tribal Proposal. Road obliteration is a priority activity within this watershed to reduce sediment delivery to streams by decreasing the potential of mass failure and restoring hydrologic function. In association with the Nez Perce Tribe, monitoring and evaluation would be completed and a report produced researching how road obliteration has decreased sediment loads into Squaw and Papoose Creek Watersheds and their tributaries over time. The outcomes of our work, decreasing slope stability and sediment problems, protecting and enhancing investments into the watershed already made, and protecting fish and wildlife habitat, would be immediate. Monitoring of past road obliteration projects, and the Clearwater National Forest Landslide Study, 1997, show that even during the extremely high water yields of 1996 and 1997, no landslides initiated from an obliterated road. These outcomes would increase available fish and wildlife habitat, assist in enlarging their populations, meet our Forest Plan Standards, meet objectives of the Clean Water Act, PACFISH, the Endangered Species Act, and protect Nez Perce tribal treaties and culture.
