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: Habitat protection and enhancement will improve habitat suitability (nesting cover, hiding cover, escape cover, feeding habitat,) for seven mitigation target species in shrub-steppe, wetland, riparian herb, riparian shrub, riparian tree, and mud/shoreline habitats. Access and travel management activities will reduce disturbance to wildlife and prevent physical degradation of habitat.
Biological Data: A revised baseline of Habitat Units was developed in 1995, and HEP survey protocols will be applied in the year 2004 to measure changes in habitat suitability. Two breeding pair counts have been conducted annually since 1995 for waterfowl and upland birds. Three brood counts have been conducted annually since 1997 for waterfowl and upland birds. Twelve photopoints have been established for wetland and upland enhancements, and noxious weed control efforts. Recreation use and waterfowl and upland bird harvest data has been collected annually since 1994.

Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
1993 BPA acquires Wanaket Wildlife Area Mitigation Project under Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Program, securing an estimated 2,274 Habitat Units of protection credit. CTUIR assumes management responsibility.
1995 Management plan and update of original HEP analysis completed. Developed management objectives (protect existing habitats, upgrade irrigation infrastructure) and range of acceptable management activities. Refined baseline HU's (2334) and established enhan
1997 Rebuilt pumpstation irrigation infrastructure to increase irrigation efficiency.
1998 Completed management plan objective of increasing irrigation efficiency through canal and headgate improvements and created an additional 8 acres of emergent wetland habitats.
1999 Created 7 additional acres of wetlands. Succession of wetlands to emergent wetland habitats, and moist soil management will contribute toward HU enhancement objectives.
1999 Draft management plan initiated to plan operations, maintenance, and enhancements for next five-year period.
2000 Completion of management plan update scheduled, with enhancement emphasis shifting from wetland to upland habitats for the next five year planning period.
