Restoration Planning

General Framework of questions

1) Diagnosis:

  • Where does current < potential?
  • Where are habitat conditions a concern for fish?
  • What does the potential condition look like?

2) Why does this condition exist? What’s contributing to it? (Do you believe it?)

3) What could be done to improve it?

HUCs:

17060203 (Middle Salmon-Panther)

17060204 (Lemhi)

17060202 (Pahsimeroi)

17060201 (Upper Salmon)

Sites

(5 example sites in Riverscapes (all visits to each site), preferably some BACI on restoration or with potential for restoration)

  • chinook juvenile habitat capacity (QRF)

  • juvenile habitat capacity (NREI)

  • spawner habitat capacity (FIS)

  • hydraulic model (context and input)

  • topo surveys (context)
