The locally-based, non-profit Tanana Valley Watershed Association (TVWA) has previously collaborated with the Fairbanks Fish and Wildlife Field Office (FFWFO) on the Watershed Resource Action Plan (WRAP). As such, TVWA has already laid the groundwork for this project and has gained unique experience and specific knowledge of FFWFO’s requirements for the development of watershed management plans for the Tanana Valley Watershed. This project is an extension of the work TVWA performed on the WRAP. Competition for this award is not practical as other applicants would not have the same level of knowledge, experience or familiarity with the specific needs of this project.

Description: The goal of this agreement is to develop HUC 8 watershed plans, based upon the 2008 Final Rule watershed approach, to maintain and improve the quality and quantity of aquatic resources within the HUC 6 Tanana River Watershed, starting with the Chena River Watershed and then followed by the other watersheds in order of their importance to Chinook salmon, their percentage of permitted impacts, and emerging and anticipated threats to their aquatic resources. Each plan will identify key areas within the watershed where strategically selected compensatory mitigation sites could be developed to restore, establish, enhance and preserve Chinook salmon and other aquatic resources.
