Endangered Species
In December 1992, the USFWS listed several species of fish and five species of snails living within IPC’s operating area as threatened or endangered species under the Endangered Species Act.  IPC continues to review and analyze the effect such designation has on its operations and is cooperating with governmental agencies to resolve issues related to these species.

On September 5, 2007, the species of snail that had been listed as the “Idaho Springsnail” was delisted by the USFWS.  The delisting decision was based on recent studies that indicated the species was synonymous with another common species.  On December 21, 2006, IPC and the Governor of Idaho submitted a petition to the USFWS to de-list the threatened Bliss Rapids snail.  The petition was supported with data collected by IPC over the past 14 years.  The snail, which lives throughout the middle Snake River, springs, and tributaries between Niagara Springs and King Hill, was listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act in 1992.  As of December 31, 2008, no decision on the delisting petition had been issued by the USFWS.

Pursuant to FERC License 1971, IPC owns and finances the operation of anadromous fish hatcheries and related facilities to mitigate the effects of its hydroelectric dams on fish populations.  In connection with its fish facilities, IPC sponsors ongoing programs for the control of fish disease, improvement of fish production, and evaluation of hatchery performance.  IPC’s anadromous fish facilities at Hells Canyon, Oxbow, Rapid River, Pahsimeroi and Niagara Springs continue to be operated by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. At December 31, 2008, the investment in these facilities was $24 million and the annual cost of operation was $4 million.
