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: The exisiting plan is to consolidate the Hanan-Detwiler users onto groundwater wells, and or change their point of diversion to the Knapp-Wham (KW) system through piping connections. These ten neccessary wells are for landowners that cannot be connected to the KW system. There are six landowners that will be receiving new pipelines connecting to their exisiting irrigation pipelines. The ten wells will also be required to be connected to exisiting irrigation lines. There can be no reduction in the number of wells or piping connections. One property, the Keystone Ranch, will receive five of the ten proposed wells. The plan for the Keystone Ranch is to place five wells that will produce 625gpm total. It is possible that only four wells may produce the required water volume. Should the 625gpm requirement be met with only constructing four wells than an estimated $31,000 would be saved. However, Cascadia Conservation District needs to insure sufficient funding for all five wells.
Deferral of existing work elements to later date:

Section 2b: Description (Location Information)
Location(s) at which the action will be implemented
Latitude Longitude Location Description
47 68 64 N -120 31 57 W KW-HD

Is this/Are these the same study location(s) that was/were identified in the original proposal? Yes

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

Section 2c: Description (Work Element Information)
What work elements in the existing proposal does the proposed modification address?
Work Element Work Element Title
34 Develop Alternative Water Source

Proposed action to achieve the objective(s) The original 2005 application budget for Work Element #34 was $312,885, which included drilling ten wells and necessary piping connections. The CCD sent out a RFP for the Well Drilling and recieved four responses. The lowest responsible well drilling bid was for $311,310. The piping connection RFP is currently being prepared and is estimated to cost ~$42,000. The anticipated cost for the new piping connections (~$42,000) will exceed the current Work Element #34 budget. Thus the new total for WE#34 is estimated to be $353,310, a difference of $40,425.

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

Explain: This portion of the project is a critical and a necessary element in order for the project to take place. If piping can not be connected to the wells consolidation of the two irrigation systems will not take place. The biological objectives for the project will not be met.
