Kootenai River Lower Meanders Project draft EA

The Bonneville Power Administration has prepared a draft environmental assessment for a river restoration project proposed by the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho along the Kootenai River in Boundary County, Idaho. The draft EA describes the restoration project, discusses the anticipated environmental effects of the proposed actions and lists mitigation measures that help lessen those impacts. We want to hear from you about the information presented in the Draft EA. Do you have any comments, suggestions or concerns you would like to share. The Lower Meander Project is designed to improve habitat for federally-listed endangered Kootenai River white sturgeon, and address the needs of other native fish stocks in the Kootenai River. This is a compliment to other similar and recently completed restoration projects up and downstream from this one. The project is located upstream of the city of Bonners Ferry between River Mile 153.5 and 155 (0.5 mile to 2 miles upstream of Kootenai River Bridge) and is designed to enhance islands and side channels and to restore streambanks. The work would include pool excavation, island construction, bank grading, revegetation, and large wood structure installation along banks and in newly created channels.

Melvin R. Sampson Hatchery draft EIS

BPA has prepared a draft environmental impact statement analyzing the potential effects of the proposed Melvin R. Sampson fish hatchery in Kittitas County, Wash. BPA is considering whether to fund the Confederated Tribes of the Yakama Nation to build and operate the fish hatchery and related fish production and release programs. The draft environmental impact statement discusses the environmental effects expected from facility construction and program operations. Coho salmon were extirpated from the Yakima Basin in the 1980s. The goal of the project is to enhance fish populations available for harvest and to aid in re-establishing a naturally spawning coho salmon population in the Yakima Basin. The hatchery would be used to incubate and rear up to 700,000 juvenile coho salmon for release in tributaries of the Yakima and Naches rivers. Your feedback helps better assess the environmental impacts of the proposed project and your involvement is an important part of the National Environmental Policy Act.
