CX-005577: Categorical Exclusion Determination

Provision of Funds to the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation for the Purchase of the Ninemile Creek Property

Date: 03/30/2011
Location(s): Washington
Office(s): Bonneville Power Administration

The Bonneville Power Administration proposes to fund the purchase of six acres along Ninemile Creek, a tributary of the Okanogan River located in north central Washington. The Okanogan River supports populations of Upper Columbia River summer/fall Chinook and Okanogan River sockeye salmon, as well as Endangered Species Act-listed Upper Columbia Rive steelhead. Protecting this habitat would benefit these species and other native population of fish and wildlife, and would prevent this land from being converted to other types of land use.
