NMFS and BPA did not associate any reasonable and prudent alternatives with this project proposal

Biological Outcomes of this project: This project is expected to result in improved water quality, increased instream habitat diverstiy and complexity and increased quantity of usable habitat by salmonid fish. Through deriving these benefits we expect that the overall ecological productivity of stream ecosystem will be improved. This includes increased productivity of anadromous salmonid populations. Increased productivity of anadromous salmonid populations should lead to increased numbers where freshwater habitat is a primary limiting factor.
Biological Data: Because of the lag time of habitat recovery using passive approaches, our first priority is to measure the physical changes in the stream environment. They are the most direct and easily measured results of this project. Riparian vegetation, stream channel morphology, instream habitat diversity and water temperature are monitored. It is only after significant changes in the physical elements of streams and their riparian zones that changes will take place in fish production and the 15-year life span of the project is not adequate time to show the biological results. However, basin-wide and project specific spawning ground surveys and juvenile density estimates and smolt trapping activites are conducted to monitor trends in adult and juvenile salmonid abundance.

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Ongoing Funding: yes; New Funding: no
Jul 14, 2000
The FY 2000 contract was cut to O&M/M&E only. All implementation activities were passed through the Grande Ronde Model Watershed process. Planned implementation work was added back into the project for FY 2001. Personnel were spread over all budget categories. $287,500 is needed for continuation of O&M/M&E. A total of $38,458 was removed from Section 4 for implementation activities. Project sponsor will seek funding for implementation activities through GRMW.
