EPA Region 10 Climate Change and TMDL Pilot Project: Restoring Salmon Habitat for a Changing Climate in the South Fork Nooksack River, WA

January 2013

The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 10 and Washington State Department of Ecology conducted a Temperature Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for the South Fork Nooksack River (SFNR) in coordination with the Nooksack Tribe. In addition to this Regulatory Requirement, Region 10 has partnered with EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) and Office of Water (OW) and together initiated a Pilot Research Project to consider how projected climate change impacts for the SFNR could be incorporated into the TMDL and influence salmonid habitat restoration plans that address climate change impacts.

Assessing the Vulnerability of Key Habitats in New York: A Foundation for Climate Adaptation Planning

2013

This report includes an evaluation of the impacts of climate change on fish, wildlife, and habitats of New York, and an overview of adaptation strategies. Developed by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), the information produced through this project and included in this document will broadly inform the incorporation of climate change considerations into the revision of New York’s Wildlife Action Plan (WAP) which is slated for completion in 2015.

Virginia's Climate Modeling and Species Vulnerability Assessment: How Climate Data Can Inform Management and Conservation

2013

This project developed models of select fish, wildlife and tree species distributions in Virginia under multiple climate change scenarios, and produced a species vulnerability assessment for the state. The assessment is intended to help decision makers better understand how climate change will likely affect sensitive species and habitats in Virginia. The project was funded by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF) through a State Wildlife Grant, and by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) with funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and was supported by research from the Conservation Management Institute at Virginia Tech.

Caltrans Devil’s Slide Realignment Project

2013

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) invested in an expensive relocation of the Devil’s Slide segment of Highway 1, a coastal highway linking Half Moon Bay and San Francisco in San Mateo County. The segment was repeatedly closed due to damage from rockslides and erosion. The state decided to relocate the road at additional up-front expense (approximately $342 million) to avoid the long-term maintenance costs of rebuilding the road repeatedly in its existing location. Although not specifically implemented in response to climate change, this project provides an example of how realignment may present a cost effective strategy for adapting transportation assets in the face of mounting maintenance costs from repeated damage due to climate-related events.
