Reason for change in estimated budget

The scope of work has changed from an entrainment study to a deterent assessment at Grand Coulee Dam, see below.


Reason for change in scope

It has been established that entrainment has a major effect on the fishery in Lake Roosevelt. This project is changing from a strictly monitoring project of entrainment at the dam to an active deterrent project and kokanee population status. A shift in the focus was suggested by the ISRP to the use of strobe light technology. At the present time, the Bureau of Reclamation is concerned with entrainment at Grand Coulee Dam and is interested in conducting a strobe light test in the forebay area. The strobe light test requires that data be collected for baseline information (current profiles and fish behavior). This data will allow proper design and placement of strobe arrays. Data collection (monitoring) will coincide to assess various strobe light arrays and identify any spatial and/or diel shifts in fish populations.

Funding Category: Expense

Comment:
Status quo funding is being requested to allow completion of work in SOW not completed due to accrual funding loss from USGS (BRD) late billing to BPA. A project objective is to determine entrainment at the Banks Lake pumping facility which provides water to the Columbia Basin via Banks Lake. Further, our studies in Lake Roosevelt regarding the use of Strobe light technology are difficult due to the high flow at the third powerplant, and fluctuating water levels. Due to the dynamic operations and water conditions at Grand Coulee we have not yet obtained sufficient data to allow a statistically valid conclusion.
