Schedule Constraints: 1. The Tribe’s priorities may change. 2. NEPA, NMFS/USF&W consultation, and fill and removal permit applications may take longer than anticipated. 3. Project opportunities may occur which were not anticipated. 4. Land owner availability for projects may change. 5. Unforseen issues (eg. having to fill out two sets of questionnaires like this one plus a mid-year set of questions for FY98 BPA funding).

Section 7. Abstract


The Wallowa County/Nez Perce Tribe Salmon Habitat Recovery Plan (County/Tribe Plan) was developed by a local ad-hoc committee comprised of the County Court (government), Nez Perce Tribe, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, local landowners (including ranching and timber interests), U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the environmental community. The Committee analyzed all watersheds in Wallowa County for habitat problems and ranked the problems as a high, medium, or low priority, or as needing study. A list of possible solutions was developed for each problem identified. The committee recognized that watershed health could only be achieved if the watershed was treated as a whole (ie. from ridge top to ridge top). This project is to help implement the County/Tribe Plan. As such, there is close coordination between the County Court and the Tribe on prioritizing expenditures from this project. A Natural Resource Advisory Committee has been established by the County Court, with an associated technical committee, that reviews issues relating to natural resources and advises the Court. The Technical Committee will review all on-the-ground projects prior to their implementation. The objectives and expected outcomes for this project are: 1) foster watershed stewardship through education, 2) work with local landowners to develop habitat projects that will improve watershed conditions, and 3) provide watershed conditions suitable for salmonids in Wallowa County. The FWP concepts that this project supports are: 1) a healthy Columbia Basin, 2) maintain biological diversity, and 3) provide needed habitat protection. Monitoring will consist of uniform monitoring protocols (ODEQ and EPA), with equipment being shared by the Wallowa Soil and Water Conservation District, County Extension, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the U.S. Forest Service. A comprehensive watershed level monitoring program is being developed for the Grande Ronde Model Watershed Program and all projects will have a monitoring component. The process of restoring watersheds will take decades to complete but initial benefits of improving instream flows and eliminating passage problems are immediate
