Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Improve water quality in the Boise River by developing a large, hydrologically stable wetland that will biofilter urban stormwater runoff. a. Project Management - Obtain contracts and agreements
1. b. Project Budget - Develop working budget
1. c. Project Surveying and Permitting - Obtain permit and survey information
1. d. Project Design - Develop design and planting schedule.
1. e. Project Construction - Construct diversion, ponds, marshes, bridges, observation areas, island, and water control structures.
1. f. Planting and Seeding - Plant aquatic, upland plants and seed area.
1. g. Project Maintenance - Develop plan for weed control, reseeding, pond maintenance, pond and plant rejuvenation and water quality monitoring.
2. Increase awareness of public and private land developers and the general public in the benefits of wetland development, restoration, and enhancement. a. Interpretive Trail - Construct handicap accessable trail with interpretive signs anyone can follow on a self guided tour at any time.
2. b. Presentations - Prepare presentation for the Annual Nonpoint Source Monitoring Results Workshop in Boise in January and other groups.
2. c. Reports - Prepare annual reports to BPA, Idaho DEQ and other agencies.
2. d. News Media - Prepare news releases for local news media (print, TV and radio) on the benefits of the project during and at the completion of construction and as monitoring results are obtained.
3. Increase knowledge of wetland effectiveness through collection of water quality data. a. Water Quality Monitoring Plan - Implement monitoring plan collecting data on nutrients, oil and grease, petroleum hydrocarbons, heavy metals, sediments, PH, pathogens, pesticides and organic chemicals.
3. b. Disseminate Results - Prepare reports on the benefits of the wetland to water quality using information gathered through monitoring.

Section 7. Abstract


Improve the water quality in the Boise River to protect the threatened habitat of Redband trout by developing a large, hydraulically stable wetland that will bio-filter urban stormwater runoff is the primary focus of this project. The wetland will be an educational example to increase the awareness of public and private land developers and the general public in the benefits of wetland development, restoration, and enhancement. Sound scientific data on the actual operation of the wetland through collection of water quality data will increase the knowledge of wetland effectiveness in presentations and reports. This project relates to the 1994 Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Program of 10.1: Resident fish goal – The program goal for resident fish emphasizes the long-term sustainability of native fish in native habitats where possible. Other related goals are 10.1E, 10.1E1, 10.2, 10.2B and 7.7 Cooperative Habitat Protection and Improvement with Private Landowners. The wetland was planned and will be developed in partnership with Boise, BOR, US Fish and Wildlife, NRCS, Idaho Fish and Game, Idaho Soil Conservation Commission and the Ada Soil Conservation District. The expertise on planning, survey and design from these partners will continue through construction, monitoring, operation and maintenance. This wetland will be constructed in the fall of 1999. Wetland vegetation will be planted in the spring of 2000. Monitoring of the wetland effectiveness will begin in 2000 and continue for at least four years. Grab sample evaluation will be ongoing and also compared to pre wetland conditions.
