Biological opinion ID
NWPPC Program number 11.3F.1
Protect, mitigate, & enhance 100 acres of wetlands and riparian habitat along the Pend Oreille River to benefit H.U.ís and target species associated with Albeni Falls Dam losses.
Project start year 1997 End year 2002
Start of operation and/or maintenance 2003
Project development phase Implementation and Maintenance
Kalispel Resident Fish project No. 9500100. Slough will be used asa rearing area. Existing Pend Oreille Wetlands project as this would be an extention of the project and associated management.
Biological results achieved
Annual reports and technical papers
Merker, C.R. 1990. Kalispel Tribe of Indians Wildlife Mitigation and Restoration for Albeni Falls Dam: Flying Goose Ranch Phase I. Bpa Tchnical Report.
Association with existing project will reduce management costs.
Specific measureable objectives
Habitat Units for each target species will be enumerated throughout the project. Crediting for BPA will be awarded at completion of project and/or HEP.
Underlying assumptions or critical constraints
The assumptions and constraints for project success and BPA crediting are available funds to complete enhancements and provisions for O&M money to secure crediting for the long term.
Weed Conrol - EPA approved chemicals applied by a licensed operator and mechanical removal.
Perch Tree - Thinning techniques in upland areas to improve stand heights. Reforestation in riparian areas.
Tree Density and Riparian - plantinging hardwoods in riparian areas to increase stems/acre from ~ 100 to ~ 900.
Shrub Swamp - Planting native species to increase acres of habitat type>.
Wetlands - Water control structures placed along existing dike will inundate ~ 89 additional surface acres.
Pasture - Hay and burn grasses in fall to manage pasture for waterfowl.
Brief schedule of activities
1997 - Land purchase.
1998-2002 - Continue to follow brown book management plan and complete implementation of project.
To protect, mitigate, and enhance high priority habitats in the NPPC program, Section 11, Table 11-4, for Albeni Falls Dam.
Funding availability and in-kind habitat for future mitigation opportunities.
Summary of expected outcome
Fully expect that about 250 H.U.ís will be credited to BPA for Albeni Falls Dam.
Dependencies/opportunities for cooperation
Opportunities exist to continue cooperative projects within the project. This project is adjacent to existing mitigation land, USFS land, and county land. Any opportnity to include these lands in managemetn will be considered to increase the benefits of the project.
No known risks exist for this project.
HEP will be used to measure the H.U.ís associated with the project. Mammalian and avian species distribution and abundance data will also be used to detrmine target species resopnse to habitat protection and enhancement.
