Review Cycle FY 2000
Province Columbia Plateau
Subbasin Walla Walla
 
Short Description Protect and enhance riparian habitat with particular emphasis on the holding, spawning, and rearing areas of salmonid fishes, thus improving water quality and quantity and promoting natural ecological functions.
Target Species Specifically, summer steelhead, bull trout, and redband trout. Spring chinook salmon will also benefit once reintroduced. Various non-game fish species, and a multitude of wildlife species also benefit directly from these efforts.

Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Document existing habitat conditions within basin, identify habitat-limited areas, prioritize and select project sites. a. Review watershed assessment, literature search, and physical/biological surveys. Conduct public outreach, interagency communication.
1. b. Conduct on-site visits, evaluate site potential for restoration (access, landowner participation, liklihood of success, benefit to salmonid species).
1. c. Select high priority sites for future restoration efforts.
2. Implement and maintain riparian habitat enhancement projects in the Walla Walla River Basin. a. Develop grants, proposals, and coordinate with local, state, and federal agencies to develop cost-share projects. Recruit project volunteers, including local students, watershed council, and summer youth.
2. b. Develop long-term or perpetual easements.
2. c. Obtain archeological clearances
2. d. Develop project design
2. e. Secure instream work permits: COE-404, DSL-removal/fill, WDFW-HPA
2. f. Develop subcontracts for weed control, planting, heavy equipment rental, fencing, rock and tree supply
2. g. Establish pre-project monitoring program: permanent photo-points, transects, population asessments, etc.
2. h. Implement project: planting, fencing, instream structures, cabling rocks, etc.
2. i. Continue communication with landowners
3. Conduct long-term monitoring techniques and evaluate success of implemented projects a. Post-project monitoring-photo points, fish population assessments, transects, percent shade
3. b. Evaluate post-project success and if necessary implement adaptive management. Parameters might include: analysis of long-term monitoring data, on-site visits, comparison to other approaches, interagency discussion.

ISRP Preliminary Review , ISRP 99-2 Recommendation:
Fund
Date:
Jun 15, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Recommendation: Fund.

Comments: This proposal needs to be evaluated in the context of an umbrella plan for the Walla Walla and Touchet Rivers. This appears to be a good project that seems to be reasonably well coordinated with others. It should be reviewed further in the context of the subbasin plan for the Walla Walla and Touchet rivers.
