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: Restore the function and biodiversity of the ecosystem to levels adequate enough to compensate for wildlife species and habitat losses using available habitat. The loss of salmon to the blocked areas means providing subsistence opportunities and sustainable harvest levels of terrestrial wildlife species at higher levels than occurred historically while preserving biodiversity and maintaining ecosystem functions. To mitigate these impacts with additional quality habitat and/or land is necessary. Then it will be possible to provide contiguous, high quality core areas that provide the necessary life requirements to sustain wildlife species and/or habitats.
Biological Data: Net losses were measured and published using HEP. Baseline conditions of acquired lands were evaluated and reported using HEP. In addition small mammal surveys, big game production and harvest data, sharp-tailed grouse population surveys, breeding songbird population surveys, and vegetative community composition/response to management activity surveys are conducted on permanent transects with accompanying photo points. Habitat types (Daubenmire classification) are monitored to document community changes over time and/or the result of management actions for specific species. This Hellsgate Project provides an annual report to BPA each year and supplemental reports on species responses and habitat changes as necessary to document the on-going mitigation process.
