ISRP final recommendation: Response requested


Although some required aspects of the proposal need improvement, on whole, the proposal is very thorough, clear, and well founded. The proposal considers both the limiting factors and the anthropogenic causes (or exacerbations) that underlie the limiting factors. Stemming from this, the proposal takes not only a riparian and instream view, but also a watershed-wide view and promises to treat upland problems, many of which affect stream processes. The proposal covers sediment issues well, but will need careful coordination to ensure monitoring is specific and targeted on project completions. A response is needed to provide the details of the proposed monitoring and evaluation activities. Many other BPA projects are listed as related, but coordination apparently is limited to methodology exchange.
