history
History
  • 2001-03 PCSRF funded for inventory work
  • BPA Project (Wallowa County Culvert Inventory) started in 2003
    • Completed inventory, assessment and prioritization of fish passage structures in Wallowa County
  • Since NPPC Provincial Review process (2007), the project has been titled Protect and Restore Northeast Oregon
    • 4 proposals submitted for the northeast Oregon Project Area in 2007.
    • As a result of responding to previous ISRP comments and coordination with NPCC and BPA, all four proposals were combined into one project area covering all of the NPT Territory in northeast Oregon.
    • Objective was to coordinate with partners and seek addition funds for implementation of restoration work
  • Through negotiations with BPA in 2010 the project’s geographic area was expanded to include all of the NPT Territory in Washington State as well.

current situation of project
Current Situation of Project
  • 2012 Budget took a 60% cut
    • No Project Leader on staff for this project
    • Covering with existing staff until….
  • BPA to restore budget in 2014
  • Still coordinating with Partners
  • Two cost-share projects on-going
    • Pataha Creek culvert replacements
    • Mud Creek OWEB grant proposal
      • Road decommissioning/culvert replacements
limiting factors proposed deliverables
Limiting Factors & Proposed Deliverables

adaptive management
Adaptive Management
  • Adjustments to methods and techniques of implementation based on past experience/ results.
  • Fish passage
      • Bottomless culverts or bridges
  • Road Decommissioning
    • Clump Plantings work well
    • Too much straw inhibits revegetation
    • Fertilizer did not increase rate of regrowth
  • Management
    • Partnerships
data management
Data Management
  • Spatial Database
    • Microsoft SQL Server and ESRI ArcSDE
    • Organized by Project Area
    • Tracks all Restoration Implementation location data (Feature Classes), implementation metrics & Monitoring data (SQL Tables)
