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


Biological Outcomes of this project: Increased survival of migrating juvenile and adult summer steelhead, bull trout, and spring chinook.
Biological Data: Since the project primarily involves construction and operation, rather than research, specific data relative to the expected biological outcome may be limited. Other data relative to the expected biological outcome is collected peripherally during other projects' objectives and tasks. Most notably, juvenile and adult distribution and survival information is collected under projects 20127 (CTUIR - WW Basin Natural Production M&E) and 9901100 (WDFW - WW Watershed Habitat and Salmonid Assessment). Project 20127 is also proposing a radio tracking study in FY2001 to evaluate adult summer steelhead passage in the basin. In addition, there are monitoring and evaluation tasks under this project to ensure that passage facilities meet design criteria.

Total estimated budget

Total FY 2001 project cost $1,851,000
Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $1,851,000
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $250,000
% change from forecast 640.4%


Reason for change in estimated budget

The two primary reasons for the large increase over the FY2000 budget forecast are; 1) cost inflation for construction of currently implemented projects have resulted in budget shortages for previously identified projects and 2) additional projects identified for passage improvement since the original list was developed prior to ESA listings in the basin. Since ESA listings of summer steelhead and bull trout, additional projects have been identified by the Walla Walla Technical Work Group as critical for passage of these species. Many smaller projects are also being developed to improve passage conditions as a result of ESA which the requested "small project fund" would provide cost share funds of up to 50% for implementation/construction. Types of projects which would fall under this program would include conversions from gravity to pump diversions and elimination of pushup dams through use of rock weirs. The FY2000 forecast had identified only O&M costs for the outyears.


Reason for change in scope

As efforts in the basin have intensified due to the ESA listings and additional information has become available, the relative importance of various passage improvement projects has been reprioritized and new projects have been identified for implementation.

Although there has been no change in scope for this project, additional activities appear to have been added. It is not clear if these activities have been technically reviewed by an oversight committee, but they should probably be technically reviewed by the Anadromous Fish Committee prior to funding.
