Section 7. Abstract


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:
Fund for one year
Jun 15, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Recommendation: Fund for one year. Subsequent funding contingent on independent review of a comprehensive plan that shows priority of sites and actions.

Comments: As with the Umatilla Subbasin effort, the individual portions of the Walla Walla River effort are not stand-alone projects. They need to be reviewed in the context of an umbrella plan that provides a larger context for these proposals. It is not clear how many such irrigation diversions in the basin will require fish passage facilities, thus it is not clear how much progress is represented by this project. It is not clear to what extent priorities have been set for action, nor what criteria were used to select the actions that are mentioned.

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Aug 20, 1999

CBFWA: Watershed Technical Group Comments Recommendation:
Technically Sound? Yes
Aug 20, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Is this a cost-effective project?

If passage is improved, will there be quality habitat to support increased fish production?
