EIS-0246-SA-19: Supplement Analysis

Wildlife Mitigation Program

BPA proposes to purchase approximately 650 acres of private property that border the St. Joe River near Goose Heaven Lake on the Coeur d’Alene Indian Reservation as partial mitigation for fish and wildlife impacts caused by the construction and operation of Albeni Falls hydroelectric project. Title to the land will be transferred to the Coeur d’Alene Tribe for wildlife habitat protection and enhancement. The goal of this project is to protect and restore riparian, wetland, floodplain and river corridor systems to help enhance water quality and in-stream habitat in the St. Joe Watershed.
