Section 2a: Description (Species Information)
Target Species Oncorhynchus mykiss (steelhead)
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: This is not a change in project scope. Rather, we are submitting this BOG entry to be transperant and inform the council of the project modifications needed to meet the biological objectives.
Deferral of existing work elements to later date: n/a

Section 2b: Description (Location Information)
Location(s) at which the action will be implemented
Latitude Longitude Location Description
No Locations Entered

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? Yes

Section 2c: Description (Work Element Information)
What work elements in the existing proposal does the proposed modification address?
Work Element Work Element Title
B. 175 C. 165 D. 34 E. 82 B. Produce Engineering Designs and Technical Specifications C. Produce required permits D. Well development - New lines E. Replace diversions and protect instream water rights

Proposed action to achieve the objective(s) Upgrade the existing Keystone instream diversion to meet the irrigation needs rather than continue drilling wells that are not producing the amount needed. The Keystone diversion was not part of the original Knapp Wham irrigation diversion project since there was no need to alter the diversion if the wells were going to produce the expected water supply. In order to still achieve the biological objectives identified for the Entiat River we are modifing the original approach. Specifically, Keystone #1 well only produced 30 gallons per minute. Keystone #2 well produced 115 gallons per minute (GPM). These two wells scheduled to produce greater than 250 GPM and therefor the decision was made to not drill any more wells since it was unlikely that they would produce the amount of water needed. However, the Keystone Ranch does have an existing instream water diversion that will be upgraded to ESA compliance for fish screening and fish passage while providing the amount of water needed. We propose to enlarge the existing Keystone diversion from 800 GPM to 1,500 GPM. The estimated water conservation will be unchanged through the ditch consolidation. The saved water will be placed into the State of Washington's Trust Water Program estimated to be 0.5 cubic feet per second.

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