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.

Project Name & Number 2011-006-00
Purpose of Data Set The Columbia Habitat and Monitoring Program (CHaMP) is a PILOT project that is being evaluated on a yearly basis (beginning with 2011) to determine the project's effectiveness at the pilot stages (8 watersheds). Following Council and BPA review of two to three years of implementation, a decision could be made to extend the scope and budget of the project to include an additional ten watershed to initial 8 watersheds funded under the pilot.

In support of habitat restoration, rehabilitation and conservation action performance assessments and adaptive management requirements of the 2008 Federal Columbia River Power System Biological Opinion (FCRPS BiOp), the Bonneville Power Administration is working with NOAA and other regional fish management agencies to monitor status and trends of fish habitat for each major population group (MPG) in the Pacific Northwest identified through the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Status monitoring provides information on the quantity and quality of current habitat and thus maximizes spatial coverage with a given number of sample sites. Trend monitoring is used to detect changes in habitat through time and thus requires repeat samples at given sites. Minimizing sampling and measurement error is crucial in order to differentiate this variability from natural variability though time and space. In order to compare information across multiple MPGs, BPA is adopting a standardized fish habitat monitoring protocol, the Columbia Habitat Monitoring Program (CHaMP) for the Columbia River Basin monitoring programs.

CHaMP is a Columbia River basin-wide habitat status and trends monitoring program built around a single habitat monitoring protocol with a program-wide approach to data collection and management which meets FCRPS Action Agency (2010) programmatic prescriptions for habitat monitoring. CHaMP was developed by the Integrated Status and Effectiveness Monitoring Program (ISEMP) to capture habitat features that drive fish population biology and will result in systematic habitat status and trends information that will be used to assess basin-wide habitat condition and correlated with biological response indicators to evaluate habitat management strategies. CHaMP is integrated with ongoing Pacific Northwest Aquatic Monitoring Program (PNAMP) and Recovery Planning efforts, as well as the collaborative process across Columbia Basin fish management agencies and tribes and other state and federal agencies that are monitoring anadromous salmonids and/or their habitat.

The CHaMP is being proposed by the ISEMP and eight collaborating agencies to help BPA meet the requirements of the 2008 FCRPS BiOp and RPA 56.3. This program will provide information on the status/trends in habitat conditions, and will support habitat restoration, rehabilitation and conservation actions, performance assessments, and the adaptive management requirements of the 2008 FCRPS BiOp. In addition, the CHaMP meets RPA 56.3, RPA 57, and RPA 3 by characterizing stream and fish responses to watershed restoration and/or management actions in at least one population within each steelhead and Chinook MPG which have, or will have, fish in-fish out monitoring (identified in RPA 50.6). The watersheds identified for CHaMP include: Hood River, Wind River, Toppenish, Klickitat, Fifteen Mile, Lower Mainstem JD, North Fork JD, Upper Mainstem JD, Middle Fork JD, South Fork JD, Umatilla, Upper Grande Ronde, Catherine Ck, Imnaha, Lolo Ck, Tucannon, Asotin, SF Salmon, Big Ck, Lemhi, Pahsimeroi, Yankee Fork, Wenatchee, Entiat, Methow, and Okanogan. These watersheds were chosen to maximize the contrast in current habitat conditions and also represent a temporal gradient of expected change in condition through planned habitat actions. CHaMP collaborators will be supported by cross-project data management, stewardship and analysis staff, annual pre- and post-season meetings, annual field protocol and data management tool implementation training sessions.

Summary / Abstract This dataset contains a GIS geodatabase export of CHaMP monitoring site’s “visit” summary metrics and channel unit metrics for Upper Columbia CHaMP monitoring sites for 2011-2017. Due to variation in data collection and analysis metrics protocols overtime with data field changes in each year, the CHaMP data sets are exported into geodatabase files by year. This dataset contains site summary metrics data limited to the CHAMP monitoring protocol Sites. Geodatabase files zip files with a “visit” point file and relational summary metric feature class file. This export contains 3 site summary metric files and the “ChannelUnitMetrics” Polygon are linked to the “Final – Visit Metrics” for each site. It is not clear what the differences are between “Tier 1”, “Tier 2” and “Final” metrics are this information may be further defined in their annual reports. To see all protocols and reports year filters must be selected. The channel unit polygon is not available in this export and will be provided in the future or may be attained from the topographic measurement data at www.champmonitoring.org.

This export was limited to summary metrics based on the analytical methods of the protocol. This dataset excludes “Auxiliary” and “Topographic” measurement dataset that is available on the watershed data tabs for each year located at www.CHAMPmonitoring.org .
