Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: The tentative schedules for this project proposal may change due to the availability of the consulting engineers and to weather conditions, if further surveying is found needed. Any in-stream work will be constrained by the fish window for spawning.

Technical Issue: Same as original FY98 proposal – need to provide the additional information that was provided in FY98, with a focus on new work for FY99.

Technical Issue: Explain if the work was to be completed in FY98 and whether the FY99 proposal is for new work.

Comment:

The goals of this proposal are not scientifically sound. The proposal is for work that would introduce non-native species, by opening the way for anadromous fishes to invade an area where they did not naturally occur, but where westslope cutthroat trout (and undoubtedly other fauna) do occur. Such efforts have become a controversial issue. The probable effects of anadromous invasion on the native biota should be discussed in the proposal.
