Short description
Provide the necessary O&M work to be done by PGE to ensure Pelton Ladder is maintained in good working order to support the additional water and facilities support that is associated with the extended rearing of spring chinook in the Pelton Ladder. This capacity is not part of the mitigation requirements of PGE for construction and operation of the Round Butte - Pelton project.

Section 2. Narrative

Related projects
88-053-03; 88-053-04, and 89-029. All of these projects are integral parts of the Hood River Production project and 89-029 and 95-007 are essential parts of the Councilís Pelton Ladder Production Plan and release of Deschutes River spring chinook into the Deschutes. _

Project history
PGE provides the use of Pelton Ladder, Round Butte Hatchery to BPA at no charge for the purpose of constructing and operating additional production facilities. BPA pays the O&M costs of operating these facilities to produce the spring chinook required under the Pelton Ladder Production Project of the NWPPC.

Biological results achieved
The spring chinook reared in the Peltonb Ladder have a higher than normal rate of return than spring chinook from other facilites. In additon this production is realized at a cost lower than would be achieved if BPA were required to build and operated independent facilities.
