Use our Data Publishing Service to add your data set to the Data Store.

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 2010-003-00
Purpose of Data Set This project is implemented as part of the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests (NPCNF)/Nez Perce Tribe (NPT) restoration partnership. This project represents a merger of two ongoing Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) and NPT restoration projects, Slate Creek Watershed Restoration (2007-064-00) and Lower South Fork Clearwater Restoration (2010-003-00). The restoration partnership has been ongoing in the basin since 1996 and this project unification greatly increases the geographic area covered, and enhances the administrative and financial efficiency in order to maximize the direct benefit to fish and wildlife.

The 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 South Fork Clearwater River/ Slate Creek watersheds contain designated critical habitat for Snake River steelhead and bull trout, and has moderate habitat potential for spring Chinook salmon. Restoration follows a ridge top to ridge top approach with implementation focused on restoring riparian processes by addressing increased water temperatures, increased sedimentation, cattle grazing affects, aquatic habitat connectivity, and exotic invasive plants. The cost share on this project has been contributed by the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests who provides at least a 20% match including cash and in-kind contributions. Project planning and implementation responsibilities are also shared with the NPCNF.
