Reviews and Recommendations

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

ISRP Preliminary Review , ISRP 99-2 Recommendation:
Delay Funding
Date:
Jun 15, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Recommendation: Delay funding until a thorough evaluation of success to date is completed. This project should be evaluated together with projects 8343600 and 8902700.

Comments: The project's objective is to increase survival in a trap and haul operation. Yet, the proposal states that the project is not responsible for evaluating survival rates. It is true that another project exists to measure survival rates (8902401), but this points again to our programmatic comment that there is a need for evaluation at a higher level than individual projects—at the umbrella level. An example of the kind of disconnect that is liable to occur without the higher level evaluation is illustrated in this proposal's report of the numbers of fish transported. The proposal says that from 3,800 to 6,300 adults have been trapped at Three Mile Dam each year over the last 12 years. Of these, 400 to 3,800 have been hauled upstream and 135 to 1,100 have been hauled for brood stock to the hatchery (proposal p. 10). The reviewer naturally wonders what became of the rest of the fish. There are at a minimum 1,400 fish unaccounted for. The success of this project is evaluated on the basis of whether passage facilities meet established engineering requirements. This is certainly not an adequate measure for biological effectiveness. (See our previous comments on the Umatilla Umbrella.)


CBFWA: Nonwatershed Technical Group Comments Recommendation:
Date:
Aug 20, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Technical Criteria 1: Met? yes -

Programmatic Criteria 2: Met? -

Milestone Criteria 3: Met? no - Objectives are too general, need to be more clearly defined.

Resource Criteria 4: Met? yes -


CBFWA: Subregional Team Comments Recommendation:
Date:
Aug 20, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Hold to last year's costs. Potential duplicative efforts were reduced and/or coordination was improved. Costs reduced as a result of improved efficiencies. Unclear objectives were more clearly defined.

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Fund
Date:

2000
$360,000
Comment:

ISRP Final Review , ISRP 99-4 Recommendation:
Fund existing operations
Date:
Oct 29, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Fund existing operations. See programmatic recommendation for Umatilla and Walla Walla under project 8903500. The response agreed there should be a programmatic review of this project, along with projects 8343600 and 8902700. We believe it needs to be reviewed in a larger context than these three, including the 11 projects we listed under 8903500, Umatilla Hatchery Operation and Maintenance. The response observed that there have been several "evaluations" as part of program planning. This response fails to recognize the particular responsibility of the ISRP to carry out a review with specific criteria identified by congress. This project is tied to the others we listed in the Umatilla Program by the fact that a primary problem is a lack of water in the river.
