Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

a. Funds are being sought to identify watershed deficiencies, prioritize habitat needs, offer public education, implement and maintain fisheries habitat enhancement projects and monitor habitat conditions in the Umatilla River Basin. b. The goal is to protect and enhance habitat for improved natural production of anadromous fish in the Umatilla River Basin. Objectives include watershed planning, public scoping and education processes, implementation and maintenance of habitat enhancement projects, and monitoring habitat conditions. c. This project is consistent with NPPC Measure Numbers 7.6, 7.7 and 7.8. The project entails coordinated, cooperative efforts to protect and improve anadromous fisheries habitat on a comprehensive watershed management basis. Improved habitat quality will allow greater juvenile and adult freshwater survival and result in greater offspring out-migration survival. d. The CTUIR have undertaken a watershed scale approach to identifying land uses that are damaging to ecosystems or detrimental to riparian habitat recovery. Rather than focusing solely on in-channel modifications, the Tribes have utilized natural recovery to preserve and restore stream habitat. Bio-engineering approaches have been reserved for areas that will not sufficiently recover in a natural manner. e. Short-term (three to five years) project effects include native plant recovery, increased streambank stability and increased macroinvertebrate populations and diversity. Long-term (25 to 100 years) project effects include changes in hydrological features, vegetation succession, channel narrowing, increased channel shading, improved water quality, increased wood recruitment and increased habitat. f. Monitoring includes: - stream channel transects - photo points - physical surveys - macroinvertebrate surveys - stream temperatures - suspended sediments. Results will be evaluated in annual reports submitted to BPA

Comment:
Technical Issue: Same as original FY98 proposal – need to provide the additional information that was provided in FY98, plus an explanation of new work in FY99 resulting from FY98 funding.

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:

1999 2000 2001
$270,000 $305,000 $315,000
Comment:
Slight reduction due to overall increased efficiencies

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Adequate after revision
Date:
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
The revised proposal thoroughly described the project rationale and proposed treatments. Comments on the original proposal included the following: The study mentioned obtaining baselines in one year but that is not enough time to acquire data to determine power of test. This proposal may be overly optimistic because it is extremely difficult to sample and study insect populations. Watershed analysis should precede study design. The proposal does not give the relationship to 8710002.
