See comments on 199601100 - Walla Walla Juvenile and Adult Passage Improvements. Is there any evidence of improvement to fish numbers as a result of these efforts?

State/province recommendation: Fundable, but at a reduced level

Review group: OSPIT - Plateau

Recommended budgets: FY07: $120,000 | FY08: $120,000 | FY09: $120,000

Comment: OSPIT Supports implementation of this project but will continue to look for savings associated with the participation by the managers and the districts through project 200721700. OSPIT believes both projects should be funded at a combined level of $300,000.
