Comment:

The study's principal attributes are its strong cost-sharing component, its linkage with other agencies and institutions, and its role in wildlife mitigation. The ISRP review team comments, however, that the proposal is vague on methodology, does not adequately describe fish benefits, and offers overly succinct objectives and tasks. Concluding that work already appears to be in progress without Bonneville Power Administration funding, reviewers ask whether the U. S. Forest Service or BPA should properly fund this study of a refuge administered by USFS.
