Project Summary

Project 1992-061-02 - Albeni Falls Wildlife Mitigation-Kalispel Tribe
Project Number:
1992-061-02
Title:
Albeni Falls Wildlife Mitigation-Kalispel Tribe
Summary:
This project is for partial mitigation of wildlife habitat losses associated with the construction and inundation by Albeni Falls Dam as consistent with the NPCC Program and Power Act. Along with active restoration and enhancement activities, this contract will provide for data collection to provide scientific support for the continuation of these types of enhancement activities on additional properties as they become part of this project. This contract will also cover the operation and maintenance of existing habitat value and previously installed structures and improvements.

Wetland excavation at the edge of an aspen stand where we anticipate the soil and root disturbance will generate suckering and expand the stand. These wetlands are purposefully designed to be shallow and only hold water through the breeding and brooding season. The deep water habitat component already exists with the Pend Oreille River and the tributary sloughs.

Final Round ISRP Date: None
Final Round ISRP Rating: Meets Scientific Review Criteria
Final Round ISRP Comment:
Same ISRP comments as on 199206100. The project proponents provided focused, clear answers to our questions.
First Round ISRP Date: 3/26/2009
First Round ISRP Rating: Response Requested
First Round ISRP Comment:
The narrative is nearly identical to 199206100, except this project centers in Pend Oreille subbasin and includes some management activities. The proposal included well-crafted sections on technical justification, program significance, and project relationships. The project history section described past work, and individual projects are described in the project reports. However, the only data shown was change in HUs on one parcel. Generally no monitoring data were presented, although digging into linked reports reveals that monitoring was done in 2004. In the future, the ISRP request a summary of the monitoring data collected since 2002 and identification of the linkages between previous data collection and the proposed UWMEP plan. Information on criteria for prioritizing and identifying potential projects would also be useful. HEP can be used as a tool for crediting but not for effectiveness monitoring.

A response is requested on the following:
1. Provide a summary and interpretation of monitoring data collected prior to 2008.
2. How will data from the new monitoring plan (UWMEP) that began in 2008 be integrated with data collected in the past? The ISRP asks that the authors to provide details on where this data is stored.
