Mid-Columbia Coho Restoration Program

AGENCY: Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), Department of Energy

ACTION: Notice of availability of Record of Decision (ROD).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces the availability of the ROD for the Mid-
Columbia Coho restoration program, sponsored by the Confederated Tribes 
and Bands of the Yakama Nation and based on the Mid-Columbia Coho 
Restoration Program EIS (DOE/EIS-0425, March 2012). The purpose of the 
program is to re-establish naturally spawning coho populations to 
harvestable levels in tributaries of the Wenatchee and Methow basins in 
north-central Washington State (Okanogan and Chelan Counties). To 
accomplish this goal, the Yakama Nation would expand an existing 
program, ongoing since 1996, by releasing up to 2.16 million coho 
smolts from up to 24 new acclimation sites in both basins. The Yakama 
Nation would also continue the use of hatcheries, incubation, and 
broodstock collection sites already in use by the existing program; 
build a small new hatchery in the Wenatchee basin; and implement a 
comprehensive monitoring and evaluation program.
    The ROD describes BPA's decision to fund the final phases of this 
program in order to honor commitments outlined in the 2008 Columbia 
Basin Fish Accords Memorandum of Agreement and to mitigate for the 
effects of the Federal Columbia River Power System on fish and wildlife 
in the Columbia River.
