Section 7. Abstract


The proposal requests continued Bonneville Power Administration funding for FY 99 coordination of McKenzie Focus Watershed Council planning, education, assessment, research, monitoring, and fish and wildlife enhancement projects. The specific objectives are to: 1) continue to coordinate McKenzie Watershed project prioritization and planning among federal, state, and local government agencies, and landowners; 2) coordinate implementation of watershed assessment, research, acquisition, restoration, and monitoring projects; 3) secure other funding for long-term support of ongoing council operations; and 4) continue watershed education/outreach program for improvement of fish and wildlife habitat and water quality. Watershed Council actions will improve resource stewardship and protect fish and wildlife habitat through outreach and education activities and, where appropriate, restoring or acquiring key areas. The Council is developing a strategy for acquiring the highest quality habitats in the watershed that do not have protection and to restore critical pieces of habitat with the objective of restoring watershed-wide connectivity. Specific measurable outcomes of Council actions include: 1) an increase in ecologically functioning riparian zones; 2) an increase in the protection and restoration of in-channel and riparian habitats for resident and anadromous fish and wildlife; 3) an increase in rearing habitat for juvenile spring chinook; 4) monitoring data for assessment of water quality during base-flows and storm-events; and 5) increased public awareness and implementation of actions necessary to protect fish and wildlife habitat and water quality. The progress of the Council coordinator?s work program is evaluated every six months. Evaluation of the Council?s fish and wildlife programs will be through ongoing monitoring.

[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
ISRP review notes that the McKenzie River watershed has experienced extensive growth and development, with the result that coordination is urgently required for riverine protection and enhancement. The proposal is stated quite reasonably, with built-in monitoring and evaluation. It is commended for its analytical approach. The matrix demonstrates awareness of the need for a comprehensive methodology as well.
