Other Budget Explanation

Schedule Constraints: There are currently 23 BPA owned Yakima Phase II fish facilities under the custody of Reclamation, with 6 additional sites scheduled for construction completion during 1998. This may increase to 60 or more when Phase II construction is complete in approximately the year 2003, depending on the timing and level of construction funding provided by BPA. The actual O&M work schedule and associated costs will depend on the rate that these facilities are brought on-line.

Section 7. Abstract


Yakima River basin anadromous fish populations once supported significant tribal and non-tribal harvests. However these populations have declined to where only minimal tribal harvests are allowed, and to where some stocks may be headed for eventual extinction without intervention. In accordance with the Pacific Northwest Electric Power Planning and Conservation Act, BPA is funding the design, construction, operation and maintenance of fish protective and monitoring facilities in the Yakima River Basin as part of a program to mitigate impacts to anadromous fish by BPA owned mainstem Columbia River structures. Facilities include irrigation diversion fish screens and one major adult fish trapping complex. These structures are intended to help reverse this decline by monitoring and controlling adult anadromous fish movement, and by preventing fish from moving into and thus being lost in dead-end irrigation system waterways. Migrating smolt are particularly prone to follow water currents into these dead-end waterways. A good O&M program is needed to closely monitor and properly maintain these facilities to assure that fish are being monitored and protected. Approximately 60 facilities are planned for construction or modification by the year 2003. Construction has been completed and O&M begun on 23 facilities to date, with 6 more expected to come on-line by the end of 1998. As sites are brought on-line, custody is assigned to Reclamation for operation and maintenance, with BPA reimbursing Reclamation for all costs via an intergovernmental contract funded by their fish & wildlife program.
