Reclamation's Tributary Habitat Program in the Pacific Northwest Region was initiated in 2000 as part of the NOAA Fisheries Biological Opinions on Operation and Maintenance of the FCRPS. Reclamation is currently operating under the 2014 Final Supplemental FCRPS Biological Opinion.
There are two parts to the Reclamation Tributary Habitat Program for the FCRPS Biological Opinion. One part is related to the implementation of habitat improvements projects. The other part involves evalutation of habitat improvement projects with expert panels.
Reclamation works in partnership with local landowners, representatives from states, tribes, other federal agencies, and conservation groups on habitat projects to improve spawning and rearing habitat for Columbia River Basin salmon and steelhead listed under the Endangered Species Act.Publications produced by the program cover a range of topics including environmental compliance, project completion, and scientific investigations associated with river system behavior for planning and implementation of instream habitat improvement projects.
