Section 2: Financial Information/Budget for Rescheduled Activities
Original Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2007: $1,930,893
Proposed Budget for Rescheduled Activities FY 2008: $1,930,893
Explanation or Additional Information: We are requesting reschedule of funds from FY08 to FY09. Reschedule is necessary because the project was not ready for implementation in FY08 due to delay in receiving permits and environmental factors.

Section 3: Financial Information/Budget for Rescheduled Activities
Activity Description Original Start Date Original End Date New Start Date New End Date Condition/Situation Creating the Need to Reschedule Cost What Will Enable the Work to be Achieved Now?
All work elements related to removal of Hemlock Dam and restoration of Trout Creek in the vicinity of the dam are being rescheduled from FY08 to FY09.  7/1/2008  12/30/2008  7/1/2009  12/30/2009  Delays in receiving permits. Also, water levels were at historic highs in the spring months, making this a difficult year to re-route the entire stream during construction activities.  $00  Permits have been received. 

Please explain why the following alternative funding solutions are not feasible and would jeopardize the project:
Reducing existing scope of project
(i.e., eliminating some activities planned for FY 2008 to accommodate the FY 2007 activities)
The project entails removal of a dam and restoration of the pre-dam channel. All components of the work must occur in the same water year due to issues with fish passage, water quality.
Shifting entire schedule
(i.e., deferring some FY 2008 activities to FY 2009 to avoid doubling up on activities this year)
We are essentially shifting the entire dam removal and channel restoration from FY08 to FY09.
