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 intended to affect the biotic/abiotic interactions that support aquatic habitat, specifically, by reducing erosion, increasing channel/floodplain interactions, increasing sediment trapping, improving vigor of riparian vegetative communities. The ultimate goal is recovery of the water storage and retention characteristics of the watershed and reestablishment of runoff characteristics closer to the historical norm. The expected biological outcome is improved aquatic habitat.
Biological Data: Habitat unit surveys and electro fishing data from representative stream reaches throughout the watershed in 1997 and 1998; , annual redd counts; smolt trapping; stream gauging, and Proper Functioning Condition assessments.


CBFWA-Generated Information

Database Administrator notes on the history of this proposal form: None
Type of Project (assigned by CBFWA Analysts): anadromous


Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
1996 - present. Developed and maintained an extensive streamflow monitoring network across the watershed.
1996 - present. Developed and maintained an extensive water temperature and turbidity monitoring network across the watershed.
1996 - present. Expanded and continued the tribes redd survey efforts.
1996 - present. Improved grazing management: fencing, water development, rest from grazing of sensitive areas
1996 - present. Revegetation: reestablishment of site-appropriate native vegetation in riparian areas, floodplains, ephemeral channels, on road cut slopes, and erodible uplands.
1996- present. Headwater meadow restoration: stabilize incised channels, control grazing, reestablish native vegetation, construct low sediment trapping check-dams in intermittent channels.
1996 - 1999. Fire rehabilitation: water bar fire lines, revegetate fire lines and burned areas, riparian areas and uplands, utilize large woody debris for sediment trapping on slopes, incorporate large wood into channels.
1997 - 1998. Implemented a watershed wide anadromous fish habitat and population monitoring program following the Washington State Timber Fish and Wildlife monitoring protocol.
1997 - 1998. Large woody debris placement: add whole trees to channel in forested stream reaches that had previously been cleaned, targeting locations that increase backwater habitat or channel/floodplain interactions
1997 - present. Developed and maintained an extensive climate monitoring network across the watershed.
1997 - 1998. Aspen regeneration: propagate aspen for planting into sites suitable for beaver habitat enhancement
1997 Placement of boulders into a steep, confined, bedrock reach of Satus Creek to improve fish passage. This steepened section of channel was created by blasting during the construction of S.R. 97.
1997 Dike removal: several dikes were removed from the left bank of Satus Creek along a 4-mile reach above the uppermost crossing of S.R. 97. Large boulders extracted from the dikes were placed in the channel to improve aquatic habitat.
1998 Developed GIS map of Satus Creek riparian vegetation and stream channel for the years 1949, 1995 and 1997.
1998 - present. Road relocation/obliteration: four miles of floodplain road along Satus Creek was obliterated. Other relocations/obliterations completed include segments along Wilson-Charley and Seattle creeks. A project is underway along Shinando Cr.
1998 - present. Beaver habitat enhancement: plant aspen in suitable locations, regenerate other hardwood species, remove immature conifers encroaching on aspen stands. Some beaver reintroductions will occur late in summer of 2000.
1998 - present. Assisted BIA Range Management Program with monitoring and enforcing grazing permit compliance.
