Reasonable and Prudent Alternatives (RPAs)

Sponsor-Reported Relevant RPAs

Sponsor listed no RPAs for this project proposal

Relevant RPAs based upon NMFS & BPA Review

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


Biological Outcomes of this project: Prevent extirpation and provide potential for restoration of ESA listed spring chinook and steelhead in the Imnaha and Grande Ronde subbasins once limiting factors are improved.
Biological Data: Monitoring and evaluation studies are ongoing in the Imnaha and Grande Ronde subbasin which is detailed in the spring chinook master plan. These studies provide information on adult escapement, spawning distribution and timing, juvenile emigration and survival, juvenile (hatchery) releases, life history, ecological interactions, genetics, and fish health.

FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $3,000,000
% change from forecast -22.9%


Reason for change in estimated budget

We initially anticipated preparation for construction of facilities (land purchase, site work, etc.) would begin in 2001. Updated projection of construction on this project will not begin until 2002 - see out year budget projections. Capital construction estimates are +/- 35% based on conceptual design in the master plan and will be refined during preliminary and final design steps.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Ongoing Funding: yes; New Funding: no
Date:
Jul 14, 2000
2001
$2,309,038
Comment:
The budget has been adjusted due to a change in the indirect cost rate.

The project sponsors initially anticipated preparation for construction of facilities (land purchase, site work, etc.) would begin in 2001. Updated projection of construction on this project will not begin until 2002 - see out-year budget projections. Capital construction estimates are +/- 35% based on conceptual design in the master plan and will be refined during preliminary and final design steps.


BPA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Date:
Sep 8, 2000
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
This project shows an ongoing total of $2,309,038 for FY2001. It was not clear that this is "new" money, that is, it was confusing as to whether this amount was to come from the capital construction placeholder. After clarification with Tom Geise of CBFWA, we determined the 2001 request was new money in addition to the placeholder. This needs to be clarified in the budget.
