The Bonneville Power Administration is proposing to fund the Idaho Department of Fish and Game to restore parts of the Clark Fork River Delta and has prepared a draft environmental assessment (EA) to evaluate whether to fund these activities or not. The draft EA describes the project and why it is needed, discusses the environmental impacts the project would create – including assessment of impacts to the floodplain and wetlands, and lists the mitigation measures that would lessen or eliminate those impacts.

The project is at the confluence of the Clark Fork River with Lake Pend Oreille. Work would include using pieces of woody debris, such as trees with root wads, and rock to help stabilize shorelines; plant native vegetation such as black cottonwood, dogwood and willow; and raise some ground surfaces to create new plant and wildlife habitat. This project is part of restoration efforts in northern Idaho and eastern Washington implemented by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game to help mitigate for impacts of the construction, operation, and inundation of the delta by the Albeni Falls hydroelectric project.

The draft EA is available for review and comment online at
