The FY 2014 PCSRF funds were used to make the seventh payment (10.64% of the total debt) of nine of the required annual payments to retire the debt from the original acquisition. This paid for 204 acres of the total original 1923 acres acquired, adding key salmon habitat to the tribe’s conservation land base and giving it permanent protection. Eight miles of stream is now protected and 16 miles of streambank.

Project Benefit    

The acquisitions protect watersheds and floodplains providing habitat for Threatened summer steelhead, Threatened bull trout, reintroduced Chinook and Coho salmon, and selected terrestrial wildlife indicator species. This increased protection from development and resource extraction actions that might degrade aquatic habitats and limit fish production. They include properties adjacent to or within existing protected areas, increasing synergistic benefits.

      Monitoring text (from Phase I)
      Fish population surveys are conducted every three years in the Umatilla Basin by the CTUIR Fisheries Natural Production Monitoring and Evaluation (NPME) program (BPA #1990-005-01. The NPME program is funded by the Northwest Power and Conservation Council’s Fish and Wildlife Mitigation Program. Surveys characterize fish diversity, distribution, abundance, and length frequency. Methods include electro-fishing stream habitat units (pools, glides, and riffles) and counting Threatened summer steelhead, and re-introduced Chinook and coho salmon redds three times throughout the specie’s respective spawning period.
