Proposed Critical Habitat for Lower Columbia River Coho & Puget Sound Steelhead

Jan. 14, 2013: We announced our proposed critical habitat designations for  Lower Columbia River coho and Puget Sound steelhead listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). This proposed rulemaking identifies issues for consideration and evaluation, and solicits comments on them and information about the areas and species under consideration. The comment period closes Apr. 15, 2013. See the materials below for more information; or contact Steve Stone, 503-231-2317.

Two public meetings were held for the ANPR, on Jan. 26, 2011, in Portland, Oregon, and Feb. 1, 2011, in Seattle, Washington.
