Reasonable and Prudent Alternatives (RPAs)

Sponsor-Reported Relevant RPAs

Sponsor listed no RPAs for this project proposal

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: It is expected that reduction of sediment delivery, restoration of riparian function and increase in water infiltration in the upper watershed will improve fish habitat and increase use and productivity of steelhead trout in Nichols Canyon.
Biological Data: Water quality data has been collected in the watershed since 1997. Fish surveys have been conducted by the Nez Perce Tribe and U.S. Bureau of Land Management. In addition, BLM conducted Hankin and Reeves protocol habitat survey work in 1997. This collective work will be used as background to evaluate changing conditions in the subwatershed.
