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?
Recommended budgets: FY07: (n/a) | FY08: (n/a) | FY09: (n/a)
