Reviews and recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

Recommendation:
Fundable
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Presentation: This project began in 1992 with a baseline study. In 1995 the Council approved the recommendations from the baseline study and in 1996 implementation got underway. The project has 5 parts: 1) restoration in 4 watersheds; 2) education and outreach; 3) monitoring and evaluation; 4) supplementation; and 5) interim harvest opportunities. Funds for construction of the hatchery are included in the 99 budget so that the tribe won't have to come back for more money when the NEPA/Master Plan/ 3-Step processes are complete. BPA may have to go to Congress to get approval. The Tribe is also doing work on Benewah, Alder and Evans creeks.

Questions/Answers:

Concern: The capital expenditure for the hatchery should come out of the capital budget.

What percent is the hatchery cost versus the trout pond construction? Answer: It will take $50,000 - $100,000 to build and maintain each pond. The trout for the ponds have been donated by another hatchery.

How much supplementation is needed? Answer: That will be covered in the master plan.

What does the personnel budget cover? Answer: The $274,000 covers project supervisors, technicians and biologists.

Is there money in this proposal for the Lake Creek Project. Answer: No. Lake Creek is a priority watershed and the purchase will be completed by the end of this year.

Screening Criteria: Yes

Technical Criteria: Yes

Programmatic Criteria: Yes

Comment:

$1,000,000 for hatchery deferred to 2000
Recommendation:
Inadequate as a whole, but some portions are adequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

Although the ISRP recommends combining integrated projects in one proposal, this proposal is too diffuse and divergent and lacks focus. The habitat study and restoration aspects of the project appear beneficial, but these activities appear to be limited to provision of production and harvest opportunities. The proposal does not make clear the scientific need for or likely efficacy of the hatchery, as described. If the habitat work is done properly, stocking may not be necessary. However, the habitat manipulation techniques described in the proposal appear misguided. The proposal discusses evaluation of the need for supplementation, but it appears the proposers intend to implement hatchery production before completing their background study or watershed analysis. The budget does not appear to be consistent with the objectives. The ISRP does not support this proposal.
