Salmon Creek Pond Property Funding
CX(s) Applied: B1.25
Offices(s): Bonneville Power Administration
Bonneveille Power Administration (BPA) proposes to fund the Confederated Tribes of the Coleville Reservation (CCT) for the purchase of approximately 154 acres of property, referred to as the Salmon Creek Pond property in Okanogan County, Washington. The CCT would own and manage the Salmon Creek Pond property for fish and wildlife conservation purposes and BPA would receive a conservation easement to ensure that the habitat values on the property are always protected. This land purchase would serve as partial mitigation for the construction and operation of the dams on the main stem Columbia and Snake Rivers.
