Yakima Subbasin Plan (2005)

The Yakima Subbasin Plan (2005) was written by the Yakima Subbasin Planning Board under contract with the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA). The Subbasin Plan is part of the Northwest Power and Conservation Council (NPCC) Fish & Wildlife Program, which directs BPA and other managers of the federal Columbia River Power System to invest in projects that protect and enhance fish and wildlife species that are impacted by the hydropower system.

The Yakima Subbasin Plan is one of 40 subbasin plans in the Columbia Basin. It was written by a team that brought together local governments, the Yakama Nation, and fish and wildlife advocates from around the basin. It identifies issues and priority strategies for both aquatic and terrestrial habitats.

The official copy of the Subbasin Plan is maintained on the NPCC website:
