Biological Outcomes of this project: The expected biological outcomes of this project are to return natural sediment regimes and temperatures to streams within the Mill Creek Watershed for the restoration of target fisheries species. Restored riparian areas will provide shade to reduce stream temperatures and decreased excessive nutrients entering the stream. Road repairs will decrease excessive sediment delivery to streams. The excepted biological outcomes will be measured as part of an overall Monitoring and Evaluation Plan, which is currently under development by the Nez Perce Tribal Fisheries/Watershed Program. This long-term M&E plan will include a ridge top to ridge top philosophy with a emphasis on aquatic habitat for anadromous and resident fish. Watershed and in-stream parameters needed for assessing ecological health will be included.
Biological Data: Stream habitat characteristic data, including but not limited to temperature, cobble embeddedness, percent fines, pool to riffle ratios, width-depth ratios, redd counts, and fish densities has been collected . Data for the long-term M&E plan will be gathered from various agencies once the plan is completed. Along with the data collection, an analysis will be made to determine what monitoring gaps are present and these gaps will be included in the overall plan to be monitored.

Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $ 92,822
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $ 50,000
% change from forecast 85.6%


Reason for change in estimated budget

The reason for change in the estimated budget is that through the development of a Watershed Assessment (Hungary Mill, NPNF), the main system road which begins at the mouth of the watershed was identifies as a source of sediment problems in the watershed. The road travels along the stream for the first six miles, beginning at the mouth. This work will require the development of an engineered design. A consultant will be hired, and NEPA will have to be completed. Additionally, the movement of a cattle corral was identified as a high priority. Currently, the streams runs through the center of the corral.


Reason for change in scope

As mentioned above, a watershed assessment has identified the main system road as a source of sediment to the watershed. Restoration and road maintenance will provide sediment abatement, in turn resulting in improved habitat for critical species within the watershed.

The reason for change in the estimated budget is that through the development of a Watershed Assessment (Hungary Mill, NPNF), the main system road, which begins at the mouth of the watershed, was identified as a source of sediment problems in the watershed. The road travels along the stream for the first six miles, beginning at the mouth. This work will require the development of an engineered design (Section 3, Objective 2). A consultant will be hired, and NEPA will have to be completed. Restoration and road maintenance will provide sediment abatement, in turn resulting in improved habitat for critical species within the watershed. Additionally, the movement of a cattle corral was identified as a high priority. Currently, the stream runs through the center of the corral.
