The Bonneville Power Administration proposes to fund the replacement of an existing seasonal fish weir on Lolo Creek in Clearwater County, Idaho with a permanent weir. The weir is located on property managed by the Bureau of Land Management. It will be used to monitor federally-listed Snake River steelhead and to collect spring Chinook salmon to support an ongoing supplementation program in the watershed. The proposed weir would be designed to maintain the free-flowing nature of Lolo Creek and accommodate use by kayakers and other recreationalists. The Nez Perce Tribe would operate and maintain the weir.

BPA, in cooperation with BLM, recently completed a preliminary environmental assessment of the project. These agencies involve the public during environmental review to meet obligations under the National Environmental Policy Act. The public is invited to comment on the preliminary environmental assessment during a comment period that is scheduled to close March 1, 2013.
