Section 5: Relationships to Other Projects
Other Current Projects Related to this Project (any funding source)
Funding Source Related ID Related Project Title Relationship
Other: BIA [no entry] Fire Rehabilitation BIA has made or passed through in-kind contributions of materials for revegetation and rehabilitation of burned areas, as we assisted them with revegetation and sediment control.
Other: Washington Department of Ecology [no entry] Consolidate Two Simcoe Creek Diversions YRWP staff applied for and received this grant to supplement BPA Project 200106400, allowing a second irrigation ditch to be supplied by the reconstructed Hoptowit Diversion, eliminating a second diversion point.
Other: USDA EQUIP [no entry] Toppenish Ridge Fence YRWP staff applied for and received USDA Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) funding to construct fencing and drill stock wells along Toppenish Ridge. The objective of this project is to force cattle to pasture on the North side of Toppenish Ridge, a place that previously had no water. Pasturing cattle in this area will lessen the impact the cattel have on the riparian areas found on the south side of the ridge.
Other: USFWS Private Land Stewardship Grant [no entry] LaSalle Riparian Restoration YRWP staff, in partnership with LaSalle High School and the City of Yakima, applied for and received grand funding to restore the riparian area along Ahtanum creek owned by LaSalle High School.
Other: USFWS Partners for Fish and Wildlife [no entry] Ahtanum Sidechannel Reconnection Project YRWP staff applied for and recieved funding from the USFWS PFFW grant. The funding will be used to assist with the reconnectiong of a sidechannel along Ahtanum Creek.
BPA 199206200 Lower Yakima Valley Riparian/W The goal of the Yakama Nation’s Lower Yakima Valley Wetlands and Riparian Area Restoration Project is to purchase, restore and manage riparian lands along the Yakima River, lower Toppenish Creek, and in lower Satus Creek. These efforts are coordinated with and support the goals of the Yakama Reservation Watersheds Project.
BPA 199506325 YKFP - Monitoring And Evaluati As part of Yakama Nation Fisheries, YRWP and YKFP share common goals of increasing anadromous fish production in the Yakima River watershed. Facilities, some equipment, technical expertise, samples and data, are shared between the two projects.
PCSRF - Colville 2000-4-01 Ahtanum Creek Fencing and Ripa YRWP staff applied for and received funding to build 8 miles of riparian fence along Ahtanum Creek. The completed fence protects some of the best riparian areas in the Ahtanum Creek watershed and excludes livestock from several areas deemed prime for steelhead habitat restoration. Project staff have revegetated 6 riparian areas excluded from grazing by these fences.
BPA 200106400 Simcoe Cr Streamflow Enhanceme YRWP applied for and received funding under the 2001 Power System Emergency Action Plan for the project entitled Improve Stream Flow and Passage for Simcoe Creek Steelhead. The funds were used to screen and rehabilitate the most problematic diversion of Simcoe Creek, and to drill a number of solar-powered wells to substitute for creek diversions.
BPA 200202501 Yakima Tributary Access & Habi YRWP staff coordinate restoration efforts with YTAHP as needed, especially in the Ahtanum Creek watershed.
PCSRF - Colville 2003-4-03 LaSalle Coho Hatchery and Educ YRWP staff assisted YKFP staff with the grant applicaton, landowner permission, permitting and biological data on Ahtanum Creek. This project conicides with the YRWP's goals of restoring salmon in the watershed and working with landowners for maximum benifit of the resource.
PCSRF - Colville 2003-4-10 Deployment of Gaging Stations YRWP staff applied for and received funding to implement automated gaging stations along Ahtanum and Toppenish Creeks and their tributaries. This project has allowed the YRWP to more effectively monitor instream flows and temperature in Toppenish, Simcoe, Agency and Ahtanum creeks, and to adjust irrigation intake based on the YN mandated instream flows in those streams. Discharge monitoring stations equiped with cellular telemetry have allowed one person to track flow at several critical locations. This approach to monitoring has begun to free staff from repetitive wading measurements to work on restoration projects, provided a more complete flow record and allowed for more timely irrigation management decisions.
PCSRF - Colville 2004-4-07 Ahtanum Creek Water Pump YRWP staff applied for and received funding for a stock water well on the north side of Ahtanum Ridge. This stock well complements the recently-completed Ahtanum Fencing Project, in which 8.2 miles of riparian fence was constructed along Ahtanum Creek. The stock well provides necessary off-channel watering to allow cattle to continue to be pastured on Ahtanum Ridge in a sustainable manner without impacting Ahtanum Creek and its steelhead resource.
Other: BIA 2138101 Forest Managment & Development Budget The YRWP has taken over the responsibility and funding for fisheries input to timber sale planning and implementation in the three watersheds where we operate. This gives us more influence on the timber management actions of the BIA Branch of Forestry, and on the allocation of forest management funds to forest road abandonment, relocation and repair.
Other: BIA 2208101.512111. YN Emergency Flow Monitoring Project During the 2001 drought, YRWP staff applied for and received BIA funding for stream gage installation to automate flow data collection and provide early warning of low flow below diversions. This complements PCSRF funding described above.

Enhance Floodplain Take Measures to Enhance and Restore Floodplain Install several straw bale structures to provide floodplain roughness. Remove dikes to allow stream better access to the floodplain. Structures range from 100 to 300 yards long and are constructed of standard 4x2.5' straw bales. These 99.9% weed free straw bale structures are used to temporarily direct stream flow, or create temporary "soft" structures on floodplains. The cross floodplain structures in this WE create soft floodplain structures that add roughness to the floodplain where it is lacking. Floodplain roughness slows overland flow, allowing for deposition of sediment on the floodplain and lowering the chances of unwanted floodplain erosion. This technique is typically used in pastures with inadequate grass and shrub growth to withstand high flows without eroding. 10/1/2006 9/30/2009 $220,000

Collect/Generate/Validate Field and Lab Data Collect Data Staff will conduct snorkel surveys in stream reached where restoration efforts may be targeted, as well as several index reaches that are snorkeled yearly to monitor relative population numbers. With good survey conditions, it takes 2 technicians and 1 biologist about 1 day to cover 1/4 miles of stream. Generally project personnel survey about 3 miles of stream per year. As with WE M, the Project's goal is to survey all of the habitat accessable by anadromous salmonids in the Satus, Toppenish and Ahtanum basins. The Project will prioritize reaches slated for restoration or research projects. As an example, in FY05 the Project performed snorkel surveys in the upper reaches of Satus Creek. These surveys increase our knowledge of the upper watershed and served as valuable baseline data for the YKFP steelhead kelt productivity study. Snorkel surveys will often be tied to the TFW habitat surveys in WE F. Collect field data including stream flow, water quality, redd counts, juvenile outmigration, revegetation success, habitat survey data and stream morphology. Perform Timber Fish and Wildlife (TFW) protocol habitat surveys throughout the watersheds. TFW surveys include setting up permanent transect sites, cataloging the size and position of large woody debris, recording stream channel morphology and water quantity during the survey. In addition to those attributes, Staff perform pebble counts and snorkel for species type and abundance (see WEs G&H.) Project staff plan to survey approximately 3.7 miles of stream each year. This amount of surveying take a 5 person team 4 weeks at the minimum. The Project's goal is to survey all of the habitat accessible by anadromous salmonids in the Satus, Toppenish and Ahtanum basins. The Project will prioritize reaches slated for restoration or research projects. As an example, in FY05 the Project performed habitat surveys in the upper reaches of Satus Creek. These surveys increase our knowledge of the upper watershed and served as valuable baseline data for the YKFP steelhead kelt productivity study. Inventory sediment composition and disposition at 25 sites throughout the 3 watersheds. Survey protocols will include the Woman Pebble Count and a more intensive method developed by the United States Forest Service.The Project's goal is to survey all of the habitat accessable by anadromous salmonids in the Satus, Toppenish and Ahtanum basins. A two person team can process 3 to 4 sites a day. The Project will prioritize reaches slated for restoration or research projects. As an example, in FY05 the Project performed sediment inventories in the upper reaches of Satus Creek. These surveys increase our knowledge of the upper watershed and served as valuable baseline data for the YKFP steelhead kelt productivity study. Sediment inventorys are often tied to TFW Habitat surveys. 10/1/2006 9/30/2009 $600,000

However, they are dealing with some fairly sophisticated rehabilitation on a large scale, the results of which should be further evaluated, summarized, and reported in peer reviewed literature such as Restoration Ecology.
