Total estimated budget

Total FY 2001 project cost $1,870,520
Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $1,870,520
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $ 75,000
% change from forecast 2394.0%


Reason for change in estimated budget

The FY2001 budget forecast was based upon receiving the entire capital acquisition cost in FY2000. However, the Northwest Power Planning Council approved one-half of the acquisition cost and designated the entire acquisition as an "ongoing" project under their program, with the remaining funds to be secured in FY2001. Discounting the capital costs in FY2001, the percent change from forecast is only +34%.


Reason for change in scope

Restoration costs had not been identified in FY1999, when this project was submitted. Preliminary restoration opportunities have been identified and anticipated costs have been calculated.
