Pass (Fundable)
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Management Issue: Need more detail on whether other alternatives (e.g., other types of culverts) were considered that may be cheaper than a bridge.

Management Issue: Management issue – evaluate if this USFS funding is the appropriate allocation.


Recommendation:
Fund (low priority)

Adequate

Comment:

This proposal is straight-forward and clear, and the project should be of value to fish. It includes a good description of the problem and of the habitat to be made available, but is brief on methods. The proposal should cite the abundant literature on culvert problems and solutions for fish. It should describe how or why the proposed bridge will be adequate, though it is expected that it will be far better than the culvert. It was not clear to reviewers that this work should be eligible for BPA funds.
