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: Wetland restoration (increased wetland acreage, increased open water, longer wet season, and increased plant diversity) will improve habitat for a community of native plants and animals, including breeding/migrating waterfowl, herptiles, raptors, and other native wildlife and plants. Sandy River Delta is on the Pacific Flyway and is used by a variety of waterfowl and shorebirds. The great blue heron, Canada goose, Spotted sandpiper, yellow warbler and black-capped chickadee have been observed at Sandy River Delta. The band-tailed pigeon, Western pond turtle, lesser scaup and mink potentially occur. A large population of herptiles (including red-legged frogs) is present. Restoring the flow of the original Sandy River channel would aid migratory fish, particularly juveniles.
Biological Data: General habitat response, wildlife surveys, and detailed vegetation monitoring is taking place for this project. One year of monitoring is complete at this point and the second year is in progress.

FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $125,000
% change from forecast 12.0%


Reason for change in estimated budget

Addition of $15,000 hydrologic study for the original Sandy River channel dike.


Reason for change in scope

A hydrologic study to examine breaching or removing a dike across the original Sandy River channel was added, as described in the abstract. This new restoration opportunity would aid migratory fish, particularly juveniles.
