Spokane River Project Documents
What this HMP does well: There is great awareness of involving stakeholders and different jurisdictions' regulation. The maps are clear and helpful to the reader. The timeline is very clear, with an outline for each annual monitoring cycle.
Aspects needing improvement: High focus on controlling noxious weeds, not much emphasis on revitalizing habitat for native species. Avista could have a greater ecological focus outside of noxious weed control and provide specific goals to enhance project area habitat.
Additional important Notes: This plan is under FERC, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which introduces a new level of regulation.
