Other Budget Explanation

Schedule Constraints: Committed long-term funding and cooperation for salmonid habitat restoration and protection is critical for the partnership between landowners and agencies to successfully implement the watershed management plan.

Section 7. Abstract


Tucannon River Model Watershed Plan was developed to identify, protect, and restore fish habitat by utilizing sound technical information and citizen input. The Plan’s habitat restoration, protection, and enhancement goals are consistent with identified elements in “Strategy For Salmon” and “Wild Salmonid Policy”. Plan implementation, guided by Landowner Steering and Technical Advisory Committees, emphasizes habitat goals - the only element in salmonid restoration that non-governmental entities can impact positively. Project goals of increasing salmonid habitat complexity and stream bank and geomorphic stability, reducing stream temperature and sedimentation in spawning gravels, promoting cooperation and agreement between landowners and resource agencies for restoring resource conditions are referenced in related planning efforts within the Tucannon River Model Watershed Plan. Project implementation is relevant to the 1994 Columbia Fish and Wildlife Program in that specific problems were identified during the planning assessment. Individual, on site, project assessments with an Inter-Disciplinary Team will identify corrective actions to effectively enhance habitat conditions for ESA listed weak populations without adversely effecting biological diversity, while emphasizing total watershed health. Inter-Disciplinary Team consists of landowner, Watershed Technical Lead, and staff from NRCS and WDFW. Resource agency staff representation consistency is emphasized but flexibility is maintained to allow for optimum technical expertise. Monitoring/evaluation of project effectiveness, critical for adaptive management, will be accomplished cooperatively by Watershed Technical Lead, WDFW, NRCS, USFS, and WSU staff. The goals of implementing projects and obtaining data that will identify benefits and deficiencies to guide future enhancement activities is attainable by 2005.

CBFWA: Watershed Technical Group Comments Recommendation:
Return to Sponsor for Revision
May 13, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Technical Issue: Explain if the big cost increase from FY98 is from the added M&E objective.

Technical Issue: Describe the specific projects at specific locations (especially the Meander project), and describe why these are the most critical projects to conduct.

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
