The StreamNet Data Store is a searchable archive of data sets related to fish and other aquatic resources that are not of the specific data types included in the main StreamNet database. These data sets come from many different sources and are provided for download in their original formats. To add your own data set to the Data Store, use our Data Publishing Service.

StreamNet did not participate in creation of most of these data sets, and we are not able to answer questions about those we did not help develop. For questions about the data sets available from this page, please contact the originator of the particular data set.

Date Data Set Published on StreamNet Data Store 03-16-2015
Project Name & Number 2010-003-00
Purpose of Data Set The LSFC watershed project was created in 2011 from the merger of two previously ongoing Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) and NPT restoration projects, #1996-077-05, Meadow Creek Watershed Restoration, and #2000-036-00, Mill Creek Watershed Restoration, and includes an expansion of the project area to encompass all of the NPCNF lands in the lower South Fork Clearwater River basin from the National Forest boundary in the west to the Newsome and Crooked River watersheds in the east. Restoration work in the LSFC started in 1996 and is a cooperative effort between BPA, the U.S. Forest Service, and the NPT under the NPCNF Watershed Restoration Partnership. The ultimate goal of the project is to restore the physical and biological characteristics of the watershed to provide quality habitat for anadromous and resident fish species that support the historical, cultural and economic practices of the Nez Perce Tribe. The LSFC watershed contains proposed critical habitat for listed species steelhead trout and potential critical habitat for bull trout; it has moderate habitat potential for spring Chinook salmon. Restoration in this watershed focuses on restoring riparian processes by addressing increased water temperatures, increased sedimentation, cattle grazing affects, fish passage issues, and noxious weed infestations. Previously completed contract work includes culvert replacements, road decommissioning, installation of riparian vegetation cages, annual riparian vegetation planting, installation and maintenance of 5 miles of fence, re-contouring of the McComas Meadow ditch, and monitoring and revegetation surveys.
