At the Council’s August 2010 request, the ISRP reviewed a submittal received from Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (MFWP) regarding Sekokini Springs Isolation Facility, Hungry Horse Mitigation Program, BPA Project #1991-019-03. This project has undergone a number of ISRP reviews over the past few years. This MFWP’s 2010 submittal responds to the ISRP’s most recent review of September 29, 2008 (ISRP 2008-12).
The ISRP recommends Meets Scientific Review Criteria (Qualified). The revised Master Plan and response justify moving ahead with the implementation of plans for the Sekokini Springs facility. However, some project protocols require more complete description. This can be provided within the resident fish categorical review of the Hungry Horse Mitigation Program, of which Sekokini Springs is a part.
