Project history
The Parkdale facilities will allow holding and spawning spring chinook and steelhead captured at Powerdale. They can also acclimate and release additional spring chinook and winter steelhead.

Biological results achieved
The Parkdale facility will be new but maturing fish have been successfully held in Rogers Spring Creek (Parkdale site).

Annual reports and technical papers
BPA 1996 Draft Environmental Impact Statement. Annual reports to BPA.

Management implications
Development of this site is mandatory to hold fish until ripe, meet spawning protocol, and spawn them.

Specific measureable objectives
Specific measurable objectives and testable hypotheses are specific and detailed in projects 8805303 and 8805304.

Testable hypothesis

Underlying assumptions or critical constraints
Holding wild winter steelhead here for a few years has lead us to believe that it is the most efficient and safest site available.

Holding techniques, spawning protocol and actual spawning are the only activities taking place here.

Brief schedule of activities
Limited amount of design in 1996. Design and construction to be carried out during FY97.

Biological need
This facility is critical to meeting the goals and objectives spelled out in the Master Plan and draft EIS.

Critical uncertainties
Uncertainties should be confined to purchase of the site design, construction and following procedures and protocols.

Summary of expected outcome
By using this facility, we should have the lowest adult pre-spawning mortality, best egg production and a safe fish disease situation.

Dependencies/opportunities for cooperation
There are 3 broad categories of activities: enginnering, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation. All are tied together.

Social and political risks should be few based on strong public support and biological and genetic risks are addressed in the Hood River Production Master Plan.

Monitoring activity
Projects 8805303 and 8805304 address the M&E portions of the project.
