Recommendations on a Mainstem Plan for the Fish and Wildlife Program

This spring the Council requested recommendations on the development of a mainstem plan for the Council's Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program.

As stated in the 2000 Fish and Wildlife Program amendments adopted last fall, "This plan will develop standards for systemwide coordination, such as flow regimes, spill, reservoir elevations, water retention times, passage modifications at mainstem dams, and operational requirements to protect mainstem spawning and rearing areas."

The Council is inviting public comment on the recommendations through August 1, 2001. It may be helpful to review the 2000 Fish and Wildlife Program for background information and to understand the context for comments on the mainstem plan recommendations.
