Sponsor-Reported Relevant RPAs

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 expected biological outcomes of this project are decreased sediment delivery to streams, regeneration of riparian vegetation which will provide shade and reduce temperatures, and to provide access to critical spawning habitat. Decreased sediment delivery, from culvert replacement will improve prime spawning habitat within this watershed. Improving aquatic organism habitat is the overall expected biological outcome resulting from this project. The excepted biological outcomes will be measured as part of an overall Monitoring and Evaluation Plan, which is under development by the Nez Perce Tribe Fisheries/Watershed Program. This plan will address in-stream physical and biological characteristics, as well as riparian characteristics.
Biological Data: Stream habitat characteristic data, including but not limited to temperature, cobble embeddedness, percent fines, pool to riffle ratios, width-depth ratios, macroinvertebrates, redd counts, and fish densities has been collected . The M & E plan which is under current development will address any data gaps that may be present.

Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $367,044
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $150,000
% change from forecast 144.7%


Reason for change in estimated budget

The reason for the estimated change in budget is that through the analysis for the watershed assessment, culverts were identified as a high priority and a potential for large sediment problems in the watershed. This task is within the goals and objectives of this project, although it was not foreseeable when the FY2000 proposal were written; therefore, the funding was not projected.
