Proposal Type: Ongoing
Proposal Number: 200201400
Proposal Name: Sunnyside Wildlife Mitigation
BPA Project Manager: Joe Deherrera
Agency, Institution or Organization: Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW)
Short Description: Maintain funding for ongoing O&M and enhancement of floodplain and shrub-steppe focal habitats on the Sunnyside Wildlife Area. These subbasin plan priorities will partially meet BPA's Columbia River mitigation obligations.
Information Transfer: Information will be shared either electronically or in hard copy reports to all interested parties, and will show how work accomplished on the Sunnyside Wildlife Area is integral to the priorities of the Yakima Subbasin Plan and how it complements work performed by other entities.

Section 6: Biological Objectives
Biological Objectives of this Proposed Project
Biological Objective Full Description Associated Subbasin Plan Strategy Page Nos
Enhance the normal hydrology of the floodplain Maintain and/or restore water flows through select management units to improve the hydrology to historic conditions Yakima Direct irrigation tailwater through river oxbows to mimic seasonal flood events. Work with local water managers to provide additional water to increase wetland habitats & improve water quality. Perform moist soil management to mimic natural processes 4-14
Enhance/Restore Shrub-Steppe Habitat Protect and/or restore habitat connectivity in this focal habitat type within the Rattlesnake Hills priority area. Protect areas with existing intact microbiotic crust. Yakima Encourage adjacent landowners to enroll croplands in CRP & include native shrub & forb species in seed mixes. Partner with NRCS to develop appropriate seed mixtures & planting techniques (Table 5, Management Plan Supplement) 20
Increase and/or enhance riparian wetland habitat Protect, enhance and/or restore native vegetation in wetland, upland and woody riparian habitat within the Yakima River floodplain . Yakima Maintain approximate 50:50 ratio of emergent vegetation to open water in wetlands. Remove Russian olive and restore to native willows, forbs and grasses. Control noxious weeds. Manage water for natural reprod. or planting of cottonwood 4-15; 2-34&35
Protect Microbiotic Crust Protect areas with existing intact microbiotic crust. Protect restored areas from degradation so crust can develop over time Yakima Protect management units from off-road vehicle use, trespass cattle, etc. (Table 5, Mgmt. Plan Suppl) 21
Reduce invasive species in shrub-steppe habitat Reduce invasive species by at least 25% by 2020. Protect areas with existing intact microbiotic crust. Yakima Use herbicides, mechanical methods, prescribed fire, and seeding of native herbaceous & woody species. Proactively map and restore lower quality areas. Be prepared to immediately address restoration following wildfire events. (Table 5, Mgmt. Plan Suppl) 20
Restore Natural Fire Regime Restore natural fire regime return interval by reducing the annual rate of unplanned shrub steppe burning by at least 50% by 2020 Yakima Maintain firebreaks while minimizing habitat disturbance. Maintain current fire protection contracts with local districts. Coordinate with fire districts, et al. on access points for quick response.(Table 5, Mgmt. Plan Suppl.) 20

Section 9: Project Future
Project Future Costs and/or Termination
FY 2010 Est Budget FY 2011 Est Budget Comments
$320,000 $325,000 Most inflationary costs should be offset by reduced enhancement costs as the wildlife area becomes an O&M project
Future Operations & Maintenance Costs
Replacement of equipment or higher maintenance costs will be incurred as existing items age. Fuel, power and other utility costs will likely increase. Flood events will impact restored floodplain habitat and increase noxious weed seeds in these areas. Reseeding and weed control costs will increase. Wildfire events will require restoration work. Salary rates are not expected to rise at the same rate as overall inflation, based on historic trends.

Independent Scientific Review Panel Final Review (August 31, 2006) [Download full document]

Recommendation: Fundable in part
NPCC Comments: The response on the monitoring, although generic, did indicate that they had a plan. Sponsors provided information about monitoring and evaluation such as noting that they currently incorporate standard Habitat Evaluation Procedures (HEP) and Habitat Suitability Indices (HSIs). See general ISRP programmatic comments on HEP; this shouldn't be emphasized as a management tool. In addition, for operation and maintenance projects before and after photographs document the progress and completion of the project. They also provide some general information about monitoring of various mammal and bird species of interest. They should be more specific on the site designs. In the future, ISRP wants to see the number, length, and location of the transects they used for monitoring and the results obtained from these surveys. Also in the future, the ISRP would like more specific information included in proposals or linkages to readily available documents that specify monitoring and evaluation information.

For Giffen Lake, they identify the problems with their first effort but don't describe how they will get around the problems. Thus, Giffen Lake is not scientifically justified at this time.

Not enough information is provided to determine if the restoration work planned for Giffen Lake is likely to be effective. Even with the fuller historical review of Giffen Lake, the ISRP was not able to determine if the sponsors will be able to dredge the lake with the current, proposed project. For instance, the ISRP understands that the springs on the north side of the lake may preclude using heavy equipment there and impact the ability to dredge the lake. The authors did not address how they will plan to proceed with dredging given springs on the north side. Re-reading the initial proposal and the "fix-it" edits, the ISRP understands that there is a pump in the lake (used to move water for moist soil management), but the sponsors do not identify the importance of this pump for dredging. Will the lake be pumped dry to allow dredge equipment access to the lakebed? The ISRP believes sponsors need to prepare a clear, detailed, thoughtful action plan for dredging this lake that includes a time table, equipment necessary, and where the equipment will be stationed at Giffen Lake to dredge. Sponsors should consider the sediment source and evaluate the possibility of managing sediment input first, before dredging -- e.g., a sediment pond at the intake.


Independent Scientific Review Panel Preliminary Review (June 2, 2006) [Download full document]

Recommendation: Response requested
NPCC Comments: This proposal meets the ISRP review criteria and benefits wildlife. The ISRP, however, requests a response to the following comments before the ISRP makes its final recommendation.

1) The ISRP would like to see the details of how sites being restored will be monitored (techniques, measurements) so that restoration efforts can be evaluated and assessed.

2) A project to drain and dredge part of the lake in 2001 did not reach fruition due to “logistical issues and inadequate funds.” The ISRP would like to know more about the logistical issues that limited action in 2001 and how these will be addressed now to ensure that funding is well spent.

The ISRP applauds the work in multiple habitats--wetlands, riparian, and uplands.
