Salvelinus confluentus (bull trout)

Provide explanations as to why the following alternative funding solutions are not feasible and will jeopardize the project:
Reduction in existing scope of project: If additional money is not provided, the Harrison Side Channel will not be constructed and there will not be funding to cover existing and proposed project costs.
Deferral of existing work elements to later date: CCNRD plans to construct several complexity projects in 08 and several in 09. Deferring existing work elements to a later date will only cause project backlog. Also, construction costs will likely increase in the future, and deferral will result in higher total costs.

Is this/Are these the same study location(s) that was/were identified in the original proposal? No

Condition/situation creating the need for the modification:
Is the situation the result of a catastrophic event that occurred within the existing location? No
Has a habitat/population/mechanical/structural dilemma developed in the proposed study location since the contract was signed with BPA? No

Does not implementing this modification jeopardize the ability to achieve existing biological objectives of this project, as well as other projects? Yes

Explain: Additional funding is needed to implement the Harrison Side Channel project in the Entiat subbasin. Money is also needed to cover additional costs on the CMZ 6 project. Without this modification, these projects will not be completed.

Section 2d: Description (BiOp Information)
NMFS and/or FWS Biological Opinion that this funding request addresses Strategy
NMFS &/or USFWS
How proposed actions will address the BiOp
(i.e., substrategy / limiting factor / metric to be achieved)
NMFS 2004 habitat the Harrison Side Channel will provide approximately 2,285 linear feet of channel morphology by reconnecting relict side channels.
NMFS 2004 habitat The Irwin LWD will increase in-channel habitat complexity by adding large woody debris and rock to create pool and cover habitat for juvenile and adult salmonids in 1,450 linear feet of stream on the lower Wenatchee River.

Section 2e: Description (Objectives)
Objectives of this proposed project
Objective
(abbreviation)
Full Description
same See attachment in Section 9 for description of Harrison Side Channel objectives.
same The objective of the Irwin LWD project is to increase in-channel habitat complexity in the lower Wenatchee River. Riparian habitat has been significantly lost or degraded in this reach of the Wenatchee River. This project is adjacent to a Council-approved action in the Wenatchee Riparian Programmatic (Project number 2007-086-00. CCNRD will submit this action for review by the ISRP pursuant to ISRP's previous "fund in part" decision to allow for planning and design prior to construction.
same Three previously proposed actions, CMZ 17, CMZ 20, and CMZ N4 are being withdrawn at this time. CCNRD proposes to use funds approved for planning and design of these actions for planning and design of Harrison Side Channel and Irwin LWD. The other two actions in the original proposal, CMZ 6 and CMZ 11, will proceed as planned.
