​Nez Perce Tribal Hatchery Programs
​BPA is preparing a draft EA to evaluate the effects of a suite of hatchery Operations at the Nez Perce Tribal Hatchery near Lewiston Idaho. NMFS is a cooperating agency, with BPA as  the lead. The EA will assess the effects of an ongoing program of Fall and Spring/summer Chinook production, the replacement of two surface pumps for the hartchery, and the addition of a program of steelhead kelt reconditioning with construction of new facilities at the hatchery to support that kelt reconditioning program. Scoping for this EA was initiated in early January 2018.  Release of  a draft EA is planned for mid February.
