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 project provides data to assess whether substrate conditions are improving or deteriorating in salmon habitat in the monitored reaches within the four rivers under study and whether existing conditions are meeting with the quantitative substrate objectives of NPPC (1994), NMFS (1995), and CRITFC (1995).
Biological Data: Data on surface fine sediment levels in the four rivers collected via three methods and estimates of overwinter sedimentation.

Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
1998 Publication of an article summarizing results of previous unfunded work similar to the project in a peer-reviewed proceedings (Rhodes and Purser, 1998).
1998 Biological assessment completed and consultation with NMFS concluded with letter concurring that the project was unlikely to adversely affect spring/summer chinook or their habitat.
1998 Surface fine data and bulk samples (shovel method) collected in four reaches in Grande Ronde and John Day Rivers and containers of cleaned gravels emplaced in streambed excavated to mimic salmon redds, prior to the onset of salmon spawning.
1998 Mid-winter collection of previously emplaced containers of gravels for particle size analysis and determination of level of mid-winter sedimentation of fine sediments.
1999 Annual report describing results to date including statistics on surface fine sediment conditions in monitored rivers and relationship to quantitative substrate objects in regional habitat protection/restoration plans (e.g., NMFS, 1995).
1999 Spring collection of overwintering containers of gravels for analysis of particle size analysis and determination of level of overwinter sedimentation of fine sediments during the spring chinook incubation period.
1999 Particle size analysis and determination of sedimentation of fine sediments in bulk samples and samples collected mid-winter and spring

1999 Mid-winter collection of previously emplaced containers of gravels for particle size analysis and determination of level of mid-winter sedimentation of fine sediments.
2000 Annual report describing results including statistics on surface fine sediment and relationship to regional objectives for substrate and statistical analysis of relationships between various methods of characterizing surface fine sediment.
2000 Collection of overwintering containers of gravels for analysis of particle size analysis and determination of level of mid-winter sedimentation of fine sediments.
2000 Article summarizing project results in process for submission to a peer-reviewed journal.

Objective Task Duration in FYs Estimated 2001 cost Subcontractor
1. Determine if substrate goals of CRITFC (1995) and NMFS (1995) (<20% surface fines in spawning habitat) are met in monitored reaches. a. Measure surface fine sediment via several methods in monitored reaches in John Day and Grande Ronde Rivers with aid of subcontractor and statistically analyze data 5 $ 6,123 x
2. Measure overwinter sedimentation in cleaned gravels in spawning habitat to provide an indication of amount of fine sediment in redds during incubation period to determine compliance with NPPC FW program goals for substrate. a. Placement and collection of containers of cleaned gravels in spawning habitat and particle size analysis of contents of containers with aid of subcontractor. 5 $ 10,637 x
3. Estimate salmon survival from egg-to-emergence in monitored reaches. a. Use results of particle size analysis of container contents to estimate of salmon survival based on available methods relating fine sediment levels to fine sediment levels. 5 $ 3,100 x
4. Investigate potential temporal interannual trends in surface fine sediment and overwinter sedimentation levels in monitored reaches. a. Statistical trend analysis of results of multi-year measurements of surface fine sediment and overwinter sedimentation. 4 $ 3,090  
5. Investigate potential relationship between surface fine sediment levels and overwinter sedimentation in cleaned gravels. a. Statistical analysis of results of multi-year measurements of surface fine sediment and overwinter sedimentation. 5 $ 3,095  
6. Determine if spawning habitats in different streams have different levels of surface fine sediment and different levels of overwinter sedimentation within years and over time. a. Statistical analysis of potential differences in temporal trends in surface fine sediment and overwinter sedimentation levels with aid of subcontractor 5 $ 3,371 x
7. Report and disseminate findings. a. Annual report detailing results to date; annual data submitted to StreamNet; results disseminated to watershed councils and land and fish management entities. 5 $ 10,430

Itemized Budget

Item Note FY 2001 Cost
Personnel FTE: Project leader for 3.1 mo. @ $4,250/mo; Technician for 1.5 mo. @ $2500/mo $ 16,713

Total estimated budget

Total FY 2001 project cost $ 39,846
Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $ 39,846
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $ 33,070
% change from forecast 20.5%


Reason for change in estimated budget

Increases in personnel salary and fuel costs, 50% increase in per diem and vehicle costs, which also causes associated increases in indirect costs (though not the indirect rate), increased cost of particle size analysis


Reason for change in scope
