The Okanogan Basin Monitoring And Evaluation Project
The Columbia Habitat Monitoring Program (CHaMP): A Standardized Approach

The Bonneville Power Administration is working with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and other regional fisheries managers to monitor the status and trends of fish populations identified under the Endangered Species Act.  Currently there are several similar protocols for habitat data collection being used in the sub-watersheds of the Columbia River Basin.  The Columbia Habitat Monitoring Program (CHaMP) is a basin-wide approach to data collection and management, built around a single habitat monitoring protocol.  It will be integrated into ongoing monitoring programs and recovery planning efforts of fish management agencies, tribes, state, and federal agencies monitoring habitat in the Columbia Basin.  For details surrounding the sampling design, field protocols, crew training, QA/QC measures, and data management, click on the link below.
