This report is a recommendation from the Kalispel Tribe to the Northwest Power
Planning Council (NPPC) for wildlife habitat mitigation for the extensive habitat losses
caused by Albeni Falls Dam on and near the Kalispel Indian Reservation.
NPPC's interim wildlife goal over a 10 year period (1989-1 999) for the Columbia
hydropower system, is to protect. mitigate and enhance approximately 35% of the lost
habitat units identified in Table 5 of the Wildlife Mitigation Rule (89-35). During the
coming ten years, NPPC will focus on higher priority wildlife resources. An orderly and
predictable pace for implementation is important. Our recommendation will address all
The six hydropower mitigation projects listed in Table 5, of the Wildlife Rule
presented habitat unit changes due to the project. These changes were accepted as
reasonable by NPPC as starting point for mitigation. Albeni Falls Dam losses were
excerpted from Table 5 of the Wildlife Rule, and are shown below. Also shown are
those estimated with project habitat units which will be enhanced on the Kalispel Indian
Reservation. These were reported in Albeni Falls Wildlife Protection Mitigation and
Enhancement Plan, (Martin et a/. 1988).
