Comment:

See overall comments for the five related Yakima/Klickitat Fishery Projects under proposal 19881205. Comments specific to this proposal: The Nelson Springs project is a one-time project outlay for a capital construction and infrastructure improvement project for the YKFP ultimately seeking to replace dilapidated facilities office space on the Yakima Nation lands used by eight people. A central function of the facility is to warehouse data and serve as a field office for staff conducting M&E functions. Objectives and expected outcomes are sufficiently clear for the construction project. The project is a component of the effort to improve M&E capabilities for the broader YKFP. Specifically as part of the broader YKFP, the proposed project addresses M&E facilities and data management warehousing needs; however, the relationship of need to Subbasin Plans and Regional Programs was a bit tenuous for this construction project. Sponsors need to better describe how the entire YKFP fits into the Subbasin Plan. Linkages to other YKFP related projects were presented briefly. The project's history was adequately described including the reexamination of the kind of replacement facility to be used. This refinement has led to a lower overall cost and, presumably, more rapid replacement of facilities. The description of methods is non-biological and described in general detail. Greater specifics will be included in site and architectural plans.
