Subbasin Planning

A comprehensive process has been completed for evaluating and protecting fish and wildlife throughout the Pacific Northwest. Initiated by the Northwest Power and Conservation Council, subbasin planning was conducted in 62 "subbasins" within the Columbia River Basin, including Idaho, Montana, Washington and Oregon.

These plans assess conditions of fish and wildlife, prioritize fish and wildlife restoration efforts, and fund restoration activities through a Bonneville Power Administration mitigation program. Idaho has 15 subbasins, some shared with other states.
