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: Monitoring migrating salmon for signs of GBD is required of the state water quality agencies as part of their waiver of the 110% TDG standard during voluntary spill. This project insures that equipment is functioning, monitors are properly trained and that adequate QA/QC is conducted.
Biological Data: Smolt Monitoring Program QA/QC documentation and data describing presence and severity of GBT collected by the SMP.

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: no
Date:
Jul 14, 2000
2001
$ 23,269
Comment:
The scope of work has decreased as fewer sites are being monitored.

The smolt monitoring program reduced the number of fish to be examined. The reduction in budget is not in the number of fish that will be examined, but in the number of sites they will be asked to visit for quality assurance and control.
