Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

This BPA non-discretionary proposal umbrella addresses a set of actions that BPA believes must be included in projects approved by the annual Fish and Wildlife Program (FWP) prioritization process. Certain actions are required by legal agreements predating the implementation of the regional prioritization process or resulting from the Endangered Species Act (ESA) or Northwest Power Act. Other actions contribute to BPA's necessary ability to make informed and independent decisions. Still others provide FWP participants, resource managers, and the Public with environmental, technical, and administrative information and analysis tools with which to draw their own conclusions.
