Other Budget Explanation

Schedule Constraints: Delays in screen civil works construction caused by diversion water rights uncertainty (state court adjudication), engineering design bottlenecks, property acquisition delays or funding constraints affects the total number of new projects completed each year, and thus the total number of all operational Phase 2 projects that require O&M services in a budget cycle.

Section 7. Abstract


Obsolete fish screens from the 1930's, 40's, 50's and 60's are being replaced or updated under the Yakima Phase 2 fish screen construction program to comply with current, regional fish screen biological protection criteria adopted by CBFWA's Fish Screening Oversight Comm. (FSOC) in 1995. The objective of the Phase 2 program is to provide protection approaching 100% for all species and life stages of anadromous (and resident) salmonids. Old screens in the Yakima basin may provide fair protection for large (4-6 inch long) yearling smolts, but poor protection for fry and fingerling life stages. Mortality of fry and fingerlings at irrigation diversions may reduce subsequent smolt production and inhibit efforts to restore depressed salmon and steelhead populations through natural production or hatchery supplementation. Biological evaluation of completed Phase 2 fish screen facilities by PNNL under Project# 8506200 has quantified survival and guidance rates approaching 100% (range: 90-99%), provided that an adequate operation and maintenance program is implemented following construction. This on-going project?s (9200900) objective is to assure that BPA?s capital investment in fish screens is realized by performing operations that assure optimum fish protection and long facility life through a rigorous preventative maintenance program.
