Biological Outcomes of this project: StreamNet supports other projects in meeting and documenting (through data) biological objectives and outcomes, but does not in-and-of itself - "expect" biological outcomes. We expect that management, investigation, monitoring and planning efforts in the basin will be more effective in serving biological resources through availability and use of the regionally consistent fisheries data provided by the StreamNet project.
Biological Data: The StreamNet database contains a variety of information, including time series data that are specifically useful for measuring trends of biological resources. For anadromous salmonids, these include redd counts, peak counts, dam and weir counts, hatchery returns, hatchery production, habitat surveys, distribution and use type, etc. However, there is no direct way to measure the biological outcomes specifically resulting from StreamNet providing that data to others in the basin. While other projects may be more effective in achieving biological outcomes through use of information provided by StreamNet, such biological outcomes are only indirectly attributable to project activities.


CBFWA-Generated Information

Database Administrator notes on the history of this proposal form: None

Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
1998 StreamNet released the initial version of an Internet-based, Basin-wide project tracking system
1998 Developed (with USGS) the current version of the 1:100,000 PNW regional hydrography, the first-ever regionally consistent hydrographic data layer, and enhanced it by adding the LLID stream-based routing system
1999 Developed the 'Event Mapper' tool to facilitate rapid assignment of LLID location codes to data points
1999 Completed assignment of LLID location codes to trend data in the StreamNet database
1999 Developed input interface tools for loading data into StreamNet data exchange formats
1999 Hosted 153,058 visits to the StreamNet web site, up from 82,312 in 1998. Hosted 52,727 visits first 3 months of 2000
1999 Hosted 10,002 data queries of the StreamNet database via the StreamNet web site, up from 9,284 in 1998
1999 Developed a data exchange format for habitat restoration project information
2000 Began acquisition of habitat restoration project data and included in the StreamNet database. Currently have 2,412 records
2000 Initiated input from regional interests for establishing data priority needs that StreamNet will pursue
2000 Re-developed the online query system to handle the new LLID georeferencing locators and the newly defined data exchange format for habitat restoration project data
2000 The StreamNet website ranked in the top 5% of the 'most popular sites' among more than 300,000 websites
2000 The StreamNet annual trend data has been expanded annually, now including 87,444 records in 7,579 trends for salmonid escapement data, 139,264 records in 21,263 trends for hatchery release data, and 9,231 records in 555 trends for hatchery return data

Total estimated budget

Total FY 2001 project cost $2,289,627
Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $2,289,627
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $1,984,864
% change from forecast 15.4%


Reason for change in estimated budget

A portion of the increase was the result of a 5% inflation factor. In addition, there were unanticipated increases in operating expenses, including: filling two key positions with individuals possessing greater experience and expertise than expected, resulting in higher wage expenses than anticipated; and, increased costs for computer system support for the project database and web site, which have become the largest component of the PSMFC Computer Center. A larger portion of the increase resulted from the fact that project staff last year were partially supported by other funding and apportioned their time between StreamNet and other related projects. This year, staff will be focused entirely on Columbia Basin data and services in support of subbasin assessments and planning, modeling, basin wide data management, and other FWP needs and activities.

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: yes
Date:
Jul 14, 2000
2001
$2,189,343
Comment:
Most of the increase in costs for this project is in the state subcontracts possibly due to the loss of NMFS funding and $100,284 for subbasin planning (new Objective 1, Task F). The ISRP recently completed a review of all data management projects.

A portion of the increase was the result of a 5% inflation factor. In addition, there were unanticipated increases in operating expenses, including: filling two key positions with individuals possessing greater experience and expertise than expected, resulting in higher wage expenses than anticipated; and, increased costs for computer system support for the project database and web site, which have become the largest component of the PSMFC Computer Center. A larger portion of the increase resulted from the fact that project staff last year were partially supported by other funding and apportioned their time between StreamNet and other related projects. This year, staff will be focused entirely on Columbia Basin data and services in support of subbasin assessments and planning, modeling, basin wide data management, and other FWP needs and activities.

There is no change in scope of work.
