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


Biological Outcomes of this project: The Clearwater Focus Watershed Program is not an implementation project, therefore, biological outcomes will not be a direct function of the funding requested. The program provides the structure for administrative, policy development, program and project planning, and inter-program coordination throughout the subbasin and for implementation projects that are designed to improve or enhance fish and wildlife habitat. Coordinated by the functions of this contract is the subbasin ecosystem assessment which will identify population distributions, connectivity, habitat diversity, condition, and factors limiting fish production and survival. The assessment, analysis, and compilation of data will provide the basis for the biological outcomes of future implementation projects.
Biological Data: Fish and wildlife data for indicator species as well as habitat and water quality data are being assembled for the subbasin wide assessment. This data is public information which was collected during projects funded by state and/or federal agencies conducted by agency staff, tribal staff, and/or private individuals.

Total estimated budget

Total FY 2001 project cost $452,998
Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $452,998
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $103,000
% change from forecast 339.8%


Reason for change in estimated budget

The budget change reflects the Clearwater Focus Program use of a subcontractor for completing analysis for the subbasin-wide assessment, work on the regional planning process, and M & E design. This change in budget was approved by Northwest Power Planning Council on April 5, 2000.


Reason for change in scope

The change in scope from FY 1999 reflects the Focus Program's response to ISRP analysis for Fiscal Years 1998 and 1999 as well as anticipated changes in the FWP from the NWPPC’s amendment process. The Focus Program has initiated the subbasin-wide assessment, regional planning, and design of a M&E program with policy direction and decision making from the Clearwater Policy Advisory Committee. These components were articulated in the FY99 response to ISRP and were the basis of the ISRP recommending funding. The FY99 contract scope modification was approved by the NPPC on April 5, 2000. The FY2000 contracts are a continuation of the modified contract as well as the FY2001.
