Biological Outcomes of this project: The expected outcome of this work will be to determine the impact of allowable flow fluctuations under the year 2001 Special Operations Plan on rearing wild juvenile fall chinook in the Hanford Reach. This information will be used to: 1) determine if chinook losses under this plan are acceptable, and, if so, 2) development of a long tern agreement to minimize stranding.
Biological Data: As part of this project, detailed bathymetry data for 17 of the 51 miles of the Hanford Reach was collected in 1998 via SHOALS (cost share with USGS/BRD) and incorporated with a GIS and an Unsteady Flow Model (developed by Battelle). This information was used in 1999 and 2000 to 1) develop a statistical sampling plan, and 2) when coupled with discharge information for the Priest Rapids Project, used to determine juvenile fall chinook impact estimates under the Special Operation Plan for the Priest Rapids Project (developed by the Hanford Policy Group to minimize stranding). The Special Operation Plan will be modified and repeated in 2001 and impact estimates will be derived using the above information and compared to the results of 1999 and 2000. Determination of acceptable impacts will be by the Hanford Policy Group which includes hydroelectric and fish manager representatives from all affected parties.

Personnel $175,147
Fringe $ 52,936
Supplies $ 4,000
Travel $ 9,760
Indirect $ 44,941
Subcontractor PNNL $ 53,500
Other Office Lease $ 1,500
Total Itemized Budget $341,784


Total estimated budget

Total FY 2001 project cost $341,784
Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $341,784
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $ 20,000
% change from forecast 1608.9%


Reason for change in estimated budget

Finalization of Special Operation Plan for the Priest Rapids project was expected to be completed in FY00 and the Hanford Evaluation was expected to be scaled down to a simple monitoring effort by FY2001. Full field assessment of a modified operations plan for Priest Rapids Dam will be continued until acceptable for long term agreement by all affected parties.


Reason for change in scope

Scope of work remains unchanged. Field evaluation time period has been extended.
