Comments:

Criteria 1: Technical Criteria - Yes: This project is inappropriately designated as a Flow/survival project type. It is primarily a watershed project and should so indicate. Difficult to evaluate because criteria are insufficient to fully evaluate watershed projects.

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Yes

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Yes

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Yes:


Recommendation:
Fund (low priority)
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Budget reduction justification forthcoming
Recommendation:
Adequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

Overall, the goals appear worthy. However, the proposal does not specify that the water saved will be reserved for instream uses. It also does not describe the benefits to fish and wildlife. This is an irrigation improvement to a large private ranch and the ISRP wondered if BPA was the right funding source.
