Recommended budgets: FY07: $96,000 | FY08: $96,000 | FY09: $96,000


ISRP final recommendation: Fundable


This proposal would continue O & M on Yakima basin screens, clearly an essential, routine component of the process. The proponents seem to have shown consistent improvement over the history of the project and have a track record of success and monitoring. Proposal 198506200 provides monitoring data using up-to-date technology for the performance of the screens. "A thorough review of O&M activities at one-fourth of all sites each year" is the target for the program. More rationale is needed to support the 25% sample rate as well as information on how the sites are chosen. It is possible that some problem sites are going unattended until it is their turn in the cycle?
