Highlighted Projects
​Malheur River Wildlife Mitigation
Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) funds the Burns Paiute Tribe to conduct restoration activities in Malheur County, Oregon and this included repair to structures on the Jonesboro Ranch.  Project activities for the property include: the barn roof replacement, rehabilitation and remodel of the 1960 house and remodel or demolition of the early ranch house.  A Historic Resources Report and Determination of Eligibility of Jonesboro Ranch was conducted and Jonesboro Ranch was found eligible under Criterion A, at the local level, for its association with long-time owner and manager Denny Jones. Jonesboro was owned and managed by members of the Jones family for 115 years.
​Steigerwald Floodplain Restoration Project
Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) proposes to enhance Columbia River floodplain habitat, restore hydrologic connectivity and floodplain processes between the Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge (Refuge) and the Columbia River in Clark County, Washington. Restoration work will consist of grading the surface of the ground around portions of the existing wetlands to create additional wetland habitat, planting native species, removing invasive plant species, breaching a 1960s U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) levee in multiple locations, restoring Gibbons Creek (currently channelized), constructing or replacing pedestrian bridges, and relocating the visitor parking lot by removing the current facilities and constructing new facilities in another location.
​Dillion Dam Removal, Point of Diversion and Piping
The proposed project would remove Dillon Dam from the Umatilla River, which is tributary to the Columbia River in northeastern Oregon.  The Dillon Dam is a cast-in-place concrete dam that spans 193 ft. across with Umatilla River with two 8 ft. wide fish/lamprey ladders located on each side of the dam.  Removal of the dam will eliminate a fish passage barrier and restore natural fluvial processes in the vicinity of the dam.
