NMFS and BPA did not associate any reasonable and prudent alternatives with this project proposal


Biological Outcomes of this project: Biological outcome 1: Completion of the East Fork Irrigation District invert syphon and lateral canal piping will provide adequate adult fish passage, eliminate direct fish mortality from the improperly screened canal, result in less canal leakage and more instream flow, and will eliminate glacial sediment transfer from the East Fork Hood River to the non-glacial Neal Creek; 2: Completion of the Baldwin Creek culvert and water diversion modifications will eliminate upstream adult fish barriers and restore full access to one-mile of coho salmon and listed winter steelhead habitat; and 3: Completion of 2.0 miles of riparian fence exclosure on Baldwin Creek in the short-term will remove sources of erosion and reduce disturbance levels within the riparian corridor. The long-term effect is to restore a portion of the riparian corridor to a more natural and higher functioning state. The ultimate goal is to increase salmonid habitat and increase egg and juvenile survival.
Biological Data: Extensive monitoring and evaluation by BPA projects 8805303 and 8805304 in the Hood River subbasin is ongoing and will be used to monitor and evaluate the physical and biological recovery associated with the habitat improvement projects (see Hood River / Fifteenmile Creek Umbrella proposal objectives 1-3, strategy a; FY 2000 proposal). The following is more specific monitoring and evaluation measures which will be completed for implemented projects: completed physical stream surveys will be used to compare long-term benefits of habitat projects; spawning ground surveys will be completed annually to assess spawning benefits above completed projects; complete fish salvage at the end of the irrigation season to evaluate fish screen and diversion operation performance and allow comparisons to baseline fish salvage data; a two-pass or three-pass removal method will be used to estimate population numbers and compare to baseline information in the sample reach (Zippin 1958; Seber and Whale 1970); presence/absence fish surveys will be completed in sample reaches; insure compliance of project design; water quality measurements (turbidity and temperature); and establish initial photopoints for monitoring long-term visual trends in riparian recovery.

Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
1996 Completed 0.5 miles of riparian fence exclosure on Neal Creek (Kirby property). Cattle are excluded from the riparian and the riparian has been recovering.
1996 Completed 75 feet of bioengineered rip rap, which included vegetative plantings, on Neal Creek (Kirby property). Bank stabilized and allowed to recover.
1998 Completed 1.2 miles of riparian fence exclosure on Neal Creek (Guisto and Meyers property). Cattle are excluded from the riparian and the riparian has been recovering.
1998 Completed 75 feet of bioengineered rip rap, which included vegetative plantings, on Neal Creek (Guisto property). Bank stabilized and allowed to recover.
1998 Planted 130 ponderosa pine and 12 Douglas fir conifer seedlings on Neal Creek (Kirby property). Ninety percent survival through 1999. Thinned seedlings and moved to other fence enclosure locations.
1998 Removed a portion of the Tony Creek Dee Mill diversion concrete apron, removed stop logs, and constructed a jump pool providing access to three stream miles for spring chinook salmon, winter steelhead, bulltrout, and resident trout.
1998 Completed a preliminary feasibility evaluation for the East Fork Irrigation District in developing a pipe bypass system on Neal Creek. Upon construction will eliminate the need for a diversion and irrigation canal screen on Neal Creek.
1999 Completed 100 feet of bioengineered rip rap, which included vegetative plantings, on Neal Creek (Meyers property). Bank stabilized and allowed to recover.
1999 Eliminated the lower Evans Creek irrigation diversion (Higgins pond) operated by Middle Fork Irrigation District by constructing a gravity fed pressure pipe system which restored two miles of access for winter steelhead, salmon, and resident trout habitat
1999 Transplanted 40 Ponderosa pine (3-yr olds) from the Kirby property, planted 40 Douglas fir conifer seedlings, 200 Red Osier Dogwood, and grass seed on Neal Creek (Guisto property) for bank stabilization and riparian vegetation restoration.
1999 Completed 0.5 miles of riparian fence exclosure on Lenz Creek, tributary to Neal Creek (VanKoten property). Cattle are excluded from the riparian and the riparian has been recovering.
1999 Completed the Hood River Watershed Assessment.
2000 Completed the Hood River Fish Habitat Protection, Restoration, and Monitoring Plan.
