Comment:

Comments:

Criteria 1: Technical Criteria - Yes: This is a habitat restoration project that should have been reviewed as a watershed project. Difficult to evaluate as criteria are insufficient to fully evaluate watershed proposals.

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Yes

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Yes

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Yes:


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

Comment:

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).

Budget constraints. Proposal was found to be technically sound and appropriate but was deferred because other work was judged more urgent and funds were not adequate for all needed work.


Recommendation:
Inadequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

There is no detail in the proposal on exactly what will be measured. The proposal needs to describe the design of the monitoring program, as well as coordination with other basin projects. The funding for this proposal should be tied to the funding of 9071.
