Reason for change in estimated budget

There was no projected FY2001 forecast because results and conclusions were not available to determine the effectiveness of the project. Additionally, the project selection and sub-basin planning process is a significant departure from previous project selection processes. Project results and conclusions show a positive benefit to fish, therefore a budget for the 2001 funding period is requested to retain project continuity and provide known benefits as a result of passage improvements.


Reason for change in scope

The proposal process change for FY2001, the conclusions in the 1999 Annual Report and the new project proposal funding process has led to extending this project. Data analysis had to be accomplished before requesting extension of the project. The analysis shows that passage improvements are successful for increasing habitat availability and use, whereas instream habitat improvements were inconclusive. Project streams have to this date have shown increases in fish density after the implementation of the project. Additional streams will be examined for passage barriers and habitat improvements; some of the streams were examined in 1990 and 1991 as part of this project. Monitoring has been altered such that more funding is used for assessment and improvements in 2001 and 2002.

Comment:
To complete implementation of the Bridge Creek Project additional design monies are needed for the lower section of the channel connecting passage to the San Poil River. Additional monies in 2004 will be needed to contract a engineer to oversee the on the ground implementation of the stabilization work on the 2556 feet of Bridge Creek starting from the new culvert on the Old State Road. The design for this stabilization is very detailed and complicated an engineer will be needed on site during the channel work to insure success. The additional monies in 2005 will allow for the implementation of the lower channel which will involve the construction of a new channel and outlet to the San Poil River. I have obtained grant money from Ferry County Conservation District to complete fencing and money from NRCS to do planting and off site watering troughs. I am working with the DOT on joint funding for replacement of culvert passage barriers on Highway 21 along the San Poil River. DOT has paid for the preliminary assessments and we are working on prioritization of culvert replacements. Implementation money will be needed to open passage to the priority tributaries.
