Budgets: FY07: $288,500 | FY08: $146,500 | FY09: $130,000
Short description: Provide the Planning Board, with tools to contribute to the NPCC’s Fish and Wildlife Program, the Project Proposal /Review Process, meet the goals of the Power Act, the and move toward “normative” conditions in the Yakima Subbasin.
Final Council recommendation (Nov 2006)
Funding category: Expense
Recommended budgets: FY07: $0 | FY08: $0 | FY09: $0
ISRP final recommendation: Not fundable
The proposal fell short of justifying the project’s need; i.e., what aspects of the current restoration tracking systems are not working and how will this project help correct these deficiencies? Although it would be good to have a central clearinghouse for information in the Yakima Basin, this proposal does not provide enough information to clarify what this activity would entail. The suggestion that this project would become responsible for reviewing proposed restoration projects and selecting those that are most appropriate seems to duplicate the processes currently being handled by the Council's review activities and other Yakima subbasin planning efforts. If the project proposed here is to assume these responsibilities, some indication of how this authority would be transferred and the method that will be used to conduct the scientific reviews of proposals should have been fully described. Although the title of the proposal implies otherwise, this project will not actually do any monitoring.
