Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

Planning, implementation, and monitoring of watershed restoration projects, and decision-making regarding the efficacy of these projects, has been frustrated due to the lack of integration of the data and information, and the inability for policy makers, restoration experts, and the general public to easily access existing information. This project will produce a watershed, fisheries, and water-quality database system known as KRIS/Okanogan-Methow that allows easy access to data sets, charts and graphs, photographs and other images, maps and GIS layers, and bibliographic resources through a tab-driven system that is highly user-friendly. Virtually all of the goals pertaining to watershed and fishery restoration within subbasins, such as the Okanogan and Methow, that are embodied within the FWP, will be facilitated by the proposed KRIS/Okanogan-Methow tool. These goals will be met because all relevant watershed and fishery restoration information directly affecting the project area that has ever been collected by FWP-sponsored projects or studies, as well as that information collected by studies or projects sponsored by any other public agency or participating stakeholder group, will be assessed and prioritized. The best information from this large body, as determined by experts from leading restoration groups and institutions in the project area, will be assimilated into the KRIS tool. This tool will be delivered in the form of 500 CD-ROM’s, on the Internet, and through demonstrations, trainings, and a report describing the tool’s long-term use and management. This information tool will be completed by September 30, 2001, provided that the project initiation is October 1, 1999.
