The Bonneville Power Administration is proposing to fund the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership’s proposal to restore floodplain connectivity to the Columbia River within the Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge (Refuge) in Clark County, WA. The Refuge is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The project would help improve water quality and habitat to benefit steelhead and cutthroat trout, Chinook, coho, and chum salmon, and Pacific and western brook lamprey. The project would involve reconnecting Gibbons Creek to the Columbia River by breaching a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ levee; removing a diversion structure, fish ladder, elevated channel, and water control structure; replacing a state highway bridge; constructing a setback levee; enhancing approximately two miles of wetland channels; and re-establishing the site’s riparian forest. BPA will prepare an EA under the National Environmental Policy Act to analyze the potential impacts of the project and identify ways to reduce those impacts. Please tell us what you think we should consider during the environmental assessment of this proposal.
