Project: Salmon River Floodplain Restoration Planning and NEPA Analysis Project

Description: The floodplains and alluvial reaches of the Salmon River are significantly degraded by legacy impacts of hydraulic gold mining. Impacts to anadromous fish include increased air and water temperatures, suppression of riparian plant succession, decreased frequency of inundation, reduced channel dynamics, lack of spawnable-sized gravels, and loss of pools used for adult holding, juvenile rearing and fry habitat. The Project is to improve limiting habitat conditions for salmonids, decrease water temperatures, and boost resiliency against climate change with the overarching goal of increasing salmonid productivity and persistence. The portion of the project funded by this Agreement will advance environmental compliance and permitting analysis for the 55-mile Project area, allowing for prioritized implementation to occur in a timely and cost-effective fashion.
