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: The combination of data collected will; 1) provide managers with necessary information for where to deploy the strobe light system, and 2) provide a baseline set of data to serve as a 'before' data set to allow for an evaluation of the efficacy of the strobe light system once it is deployed in FY2002.
Biological Data: PNNL will collect data on the orientation, rate of movement, vertical distribution, horizontal distribution, and diel timing of KOK and RBT in the area around the entrance to the 'cul-de-sac' near the third powerhouse for four seaprate one week peirods during the spring and summer of FY2001. These data will allow us to determine species differences in behavior. In addition, data collected at the hydrophones in the tailrace will help to establish a better understanding of which route fish are using to pass the dam.

Reason for change in estimated budget

In 2000 PNNL is conducting ADCP (acoustic Doppler current profiler) work at Grand Coulee Dam to determine where the best place for the deployment of the strobe system would be (based on engineering constraints for strobe deployment and fish escape velocity information). In addition, we are providing experimental design and training support to Colville Confederated Tribe staff. The 2000 statement of work will accomplish the background work necessary to begin the full evaluation of fine-scaled behavior of KOK and RBT in the forebay of Grand Coulee Dam. FY 2001 work will be the beginning of the fisheries data collection efforts in the field. The purchase of the equipment to perform these tasks is a large, one-time, capital expense but the equipment will be used for the life of this project.


Reason for change in scope

All of this work is being conducted with the intent of identifying management solutions for reducing the entraiment loss of KOK and RBT at Grand Coulee Dam. PNNL's work will facilitate that objective, as well as providing an independent assessment of the efficacy of efforts to reduce entrainment after the strobe system is deployed in 2002.
