The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) proposes to provide Klamath Basin Restoration Program (KBRP) grant funding to the Salmon River Restoration Council (SRRC) to enhance summer and winter rearing habitats for coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) at various locations within the Salmon River subbasin, California (see Table 1 and Appendix A.) This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared to examine the potential direct, indirect, and cumulative impacts to the affected environment associated with the proposed action.
This Environmental Assessment (EA) includes discussion of the purpose and need for the proposed project actions, alternatives, environmental consequences of the alternatives, and a listing of agencies and persons consulted (40 CFR 1508.9). The EA was prepared to satisfy the procedural requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (P.L. 91-190, as amended) and to determine if an Environmental Impact Statement or Finding of No Significant Impact should be prepared.
