Sponsor-Reported Relevant RPAs

Sponsor listed no RPAs for this project proposal

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: The STOI Wildlife Program would be conducting Habitat Evaluation Procedures (HEP)on any additional lands purchased to evaluate the current condition of vegetation and Habitat Units reported to Bonneville Power Administration (BPA). In securing wildlife management lands, the Tribe is committed to set these lands aside to be managed for wildlife habitat. Once HEP is conducted, site specific management plans (Enhancement Plans) will be completed and submitted to BPA for approval. Expected Biological outcomes will include targeting areas identified as potential big game winter range, Sharp-tailed Grouse habitat, and riparian areas within the Spokane Indian Reservation. The biggest expected biological outcome would be to secure enough large land based wildlife lands to mitigate for the loss of pristine floodplain/riverine and to enhance these lands to benefit wildlife species.
Biological Data: The methods the STOI Wildlife Program are using to measure habitat quality are Habitat Evaluation Procedures Models: Sharp-tailed Grouse Model, White-tailed Deer Model, Mule Deer Model, Ruffed Grouse Model, Yellow Warbler Model, and Western Meadow lark Model. Included in the models are Suitability Indexes that include, % preferred shrubs canopy, % horizontal concealment, % conifer canopy cover, % palatable herbaceous cover, % slope, % deciduous cover, and distance to cover. The STOI Wildlife Program would be collecting the above mentioned data to determine enhancement needs on mitigation lands.

Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
1993 STOI entered into the Washington Interim Agreement and secured funds to begin implementing mitigation measures
1996 STOI received partial mitigation funds from BPA to begin implementing mitigation goals.
1998 STOI Wildlife Program finalized last purchase of the partial mitigation funds, the Spokane Tribe also made a contributed 1/4 of funds to complete the 439.98 acre POLG parcel. The Total Acreage purchased from the partial mitigation funds was 1863.5.
1999 Habitat Evaluation Procedures (HEP) were completed and Habitat Units were credited to BPA for the interim losses. A total of 2870 HU's have been credited to BPA. western meadow lark (305), sharp-tailed grouse (125),
yellow warbler (51), ruffed grouse (145), white-tailed deer (1697), and mule deer (533).
The Habitat Enhancement Plan was completed and submitted to BPA for mitigation lands.

% change from forecast 0.0%


Reason for change in estimated budget

% Change did not take when entered zero ( Please Remove this remark) The Spokane Tribe did not receive any funding for this in 2000, during the project review process our project did not meet the standards set forth and ranked lower than those which were funded.


Reason for change in scope

There is no or ever will be a change in scope from the perspective of the Spokane Tribe. Our mitigation is based on wildlife habitat and will continue to b so in the future. We are acquiring lands to mitigate for the losses caused to us by the construction and inundation caused by Grand Coulee Dam.
