Section 5: Relationships to Other Projects
Other Current Projects Related to this Project (any funding source)
Funding Source Related ID Related Project Title Relationship
BPA 198805303 Hood River Production M&E - Ws This contract implemented by the CTWS consists of acclimation of spring Chinook and summer and winter steelhead; spring Chinook natural spawning distribution studies; spring Chinook run predictions; tribal harvest and creel; water quality monitoring; and PIT tagging hatchery production.
BPA 198805304 Hood River Production M&E-ODFW This contract allows for data collection and management of Hood River juvenille screw traps; adult trap and return summaries; distribution; streamflow data collection; steelhead run predictions; and PIT tagging natural production.
BPA 198805306 Hood R Prod O&M - PGE This project provides funding for Portland Gas and Electric (PGE) for a portion of the use of Round Butte Fish Hatchery to assist with rearing of spring Chinook for HRPP use.
BPA 198805307 Hood R Prod O&M - WS/ODFW This project is implemented by the CTWS to operate and maintain the Parkdale Fish Facility, which includes adult broodstock holding, spawning, and a portion of the acclimation activities. The PFF recieves adult summer and winter steelhead and spring Chinook from the Powerdale Fish Trap (ODFW). All broodstock are held and spawned at the PFF. The fertilized steelhead eggs are shipped out green to Oak Springs Hatchery. Spring Chinook eggs are incubated until they reach the swim-up fry stage and are then shipped to Round Butte Hatchery. A portion of the winter steelhead and spring Chinook smolts are held at PFF for acclimation prior to volitional release into the Middle Fork Hood River.
BPA 199802100 Hood River Fish Habitat This project works with local and regional partners to conduct habitat restoration work and monitor it with implementation type parameters and long-term biological parameters. Most of the actions within this contract receive cost sharing funding from a variety of sources. This work aids in developing prioritites for habitat restoration that uses a watershed approach to ecosystem recovery.
BPA 199902400 Bull Trout Assessment Col Gorg This project will recieve extensive biological and PIT tag data collected from bull trout in the Hood River subbasin, at the Powerdale Fish Trap and multiple juvenille screw traps. This information will be used to assist with research on bull trout life history patterns.
BPA 200305400 Repro of Steelhead In Hood Riv Oregon State University implements this contract, which consists of genetic analysis and pedigree study of anandromous and resident fish in the Hood River subbasin. Data from this project provides critial infromation to insure the supplementation program does not adversely affect the genetic integrity of the naturally producing steelhead.

NPCC Comments:

Local or MSRT Comments: OSPIT concurs with ISRP that this project should go into the Three Step process and so we have removed money for implementation. However, given that Powerdale Dam is slated for removal in 2010, it is imperative that the proposal for reconfiguring the tra

Recommendation: Not fundable
Comments: Despite its numeric designation as an ongoing project, this seems to be new work and appropriate for the Three-Step Review process. As written, the proposal suffered greatly from a lack of clarity and definition in every aspect. The ISRP cannot recommend this project for funding at this time.
