Relevant RPAs based upon NMFS & BPA Review

NMFS and BPA did not associate any reasonable and prudent alternatives with this project proposal


Biological Outcomes of this project: This project is expected to result in improved water quality, increased instream habitat diverstiy and complexity and increased quantity of usable habitat by salmonid fish. Through deriving these benefits we expect that the overall ecological productivity of stream ecosystem will be improved. This includes increased productivity of anadromous salmonid populations. Increased productivity of anadromous salmonid populations should lead to increased numbers where feshwater habitat is a primary limiting factor.
Biological Data: Because of the lag time of habitat recovery using passive approaches, our first priority is to measure the physical changes in the stream environment. They are the most direct and easily measured results of this project. Riparian vegetation, stream channel morphology, instream habitat diversity and water temperature are monitored. It is only after significant changes in the physical elements of streams and their riparian zones that changes will take place in fish production and the 15-year life span of the project is not adequate time to show the biological results. However, basin-wide and project specific spawning ground surveys and juvenile density estimates are conducted to monitor trends in adult and juvenile salmonid abundance.

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Ongoing Funding: yes; New Funding: no
Date:
Jul 14, 2000
2001
$425,263
Comment:
Implementation was cut last year for budget reasons. That work has been brought back up to planned levels. There are also matching funds available through COE for this project ($780,000). The increase in the budget is due mainly to implement 1½ miles of channel restoration.
