|Summary:||Historical data from the original Susitna Hydroelectric Project in the 1980s and more recent data collected since then on wildlife species and their habitats in the Susitna River basin was collected and synthesized. This information was used to identify data gaps, which will be used to develop objectives for further study to support the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission licensing process for the Low Watana Project, now known as the Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project. The potential data gaps identified in this report will need to be developed further, modified, and refined as the planning process for the licensing study evolves. Information needs that ultimately are determined to be worthy of further study will be based on analysis of project issues and the needs of the regulatory process. The scope of this analysis includes terrestrial wildlife-mammals, including aquatic furbearers, and birds, including waterbirds-and their habitats, but excludes marine mammals. The study area focused on the upper and middle reaches of the Susitna River drainage and lower reach of the drainage, but not the Chulitna and Yentna river subbasins.|
