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 from this project will be decreased sediment delivery to streams, restore riparian vegetation which will provide shade, in turn reducing stream temperatures, and restore the natural channel morphology to the stream. Sediment abatement from the Fisher Placer mine site will improve 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, woody regeneration, channel cross sections, large woody debris, 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.

Reason for change in scope

The addition of sediment abatement for the Fisher Placer Mine site was not previously planned, but with the development of the Meadow Creek Watershed Assessment, this project has been identified as a priority. This project will help to decrease the sediment delivery to the stream, which will help to improve spawning areas. This objective is still within the overall goals of the project.
