(Although this proposal did not participate in the fix-it loop, for full comments on "restore and protect" type projects, please see heading “General comments concerning Nez Perce Tribe proposals to protect and restore various watersheds” at the beginning of the ISRP comments on project # 199607702, Protect & Restore Lolo Creek Watershed. The comments below are from the ISRP’s June 2006 preliminary review of this proposal.) Under proposal 200710500, extensive general comments and concerns on this set of four related proposals are given that need to be addressed in the sponsor’s response to the ISRP. The sponsor should also address the specific comments on each proposal. Comments specific to this proposal: In this Imnaha proposal, five miles of road are going to be decommissioned each year for a total price tag of $154,649. This seems unrealistically low, particularly since maintaining existing roads at 1.0 mile per year costs $225,000. Is cost estimate based on experience or recent bids?
