Section 7. Abstract


The Walla Walla River is heavily diverted for agricultural use. Inadequate flow and passage conditions are a primary factor in the decline of native summer steelhead runs and extirpation of spring chinook in the basin. The goal of this project is to improve juvenile passage conditions in the Walla Walla River by providing trap and haul facilities, decreasing the number of surface diversions, and improving juvenile screens and bypasses. A juvenile trap and haul facility is to be constructed in FY98 and new screens/bypasses are to be installed at two diversions under this project. The ditch consolidations to be completed under this proposal are the last two structural juvenile passage improvements currently identified in the basin. Provisions for addressing the juvenile passage problems in the basin are a key component of the overall plan to rehabilitate and restore fish runs in the Walla Walla River. Outmigration survival benefits realized from completion of these projects should result in an increase in adult returns that will contribute directly to the NPPC rebuilding goal.

Reviews and Recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

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: Criterion 3: The proposal vaguely defined the long-term benefits that appear to be dependent on long-term funding. Describe how the benefits will be maintained in the future.

Technical Issue: Criterion 8: Explain the technical merit of trapping and hauling fish.

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
May 13, 1998
1999 2000
$2,600,000 $750,000
Increase due to deferral of work in FY98

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Adequate after revision
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
The revised proposal added little on methods, but the technical justification with regard to summer steelhead was improved. The proposal did not clearly show the relationship the Fish and Wildlife Program. The objectives listed in section 4 were not consistent with the objectives listed in section 7. Project benefits should be stated. Monitoring and evaluation should be included to check for effectiveness.
