Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: The streambank stabilization structures using live cuttings need to be implemented immediately after the snowpack melts off while the cuttings are still dormant. If there is a heavy snowpack, the project may not be able to be started until May, instead of March or April.

In-lieu funding issue. Proposed tasks appear to be "in lieu of other expenditures authorized or required from other entities under other agreements or provisions of law". (Section 4.(h)(10)(A) of PNW Power Act).

Adequate

Comment:

This is a brief, straightforward proposal that includes clear objectives and links to another project. The proposal needs more detail on monitoring and evaluation. The proposal explained its objective to fix the stream banks but did not adequately explain the fishery benefits in the context of the local populations. The proposal briefly mentioned a watershed analysis but did not detail the prescriptions gleaned from it. Photo-points and snorkeling are not going to be enough monitoring to determine whether there have been fishery benefits. The proposal should provide more information on life histories and on fish use in the reach and in downstream and upstream reaches. It should be linked to 9158.
