Funding Programs-Statewide ODFW Cost Share Program ODFW Cost Share Program Fish Screens Fish Screens – 60/40 cost share – 60% we pay, 40% water user – Voluntary - Cost share eligible up to $75,000 – Upon completion, water user takes over minor maintenance activities for under 30 CFS diversions and both minor and major maintenance activities for over 30 CFS diversions Fish Passage Fish Passage – 60/40 cost share – 60% we pay, 40% water user – Voluntary - Cost share eligible up to $75,000 – Upon completion, water user takes over minor and major maintenance activities – Some alterations, modifications, or cumulative changes to existing diversions require addition of fish passage (Trigger events) ODFW Surcharge ODFW Surcharge – Surcharge on Fishing Licenses – Maintenance for fish screens – Money gets spread thinner as new cost share projects are installed Fish Screen Tax Credit Fish Screen Tax Credit – Based on 50% of eligible expenses up to $5,000
Funding Programs-Area Specific Bonneville Power Adminstration (BPA) Bonneville Power Adminstration (BPA) – Currently funds projects in the John Day, Umatilla, and Walla Walla River Subbasins through the John Day Screen Shop – Can fund screen, passage and stream habitat improvement projects as they relate to fish passage. Mitchell Act (NOAA) Mitchell Act (NOAA) – Columbia River Basin Programs – Enterprise Screen Shop – John Day Screen Shop – The Dalles Screen Shop – Due to current funding levels, has only been used for maintenance, though this money is stretched thinner as new projects are added every year.

The Problems Mother Nature (Geomorphology, Climate,etc.) Project Maintenance Project Placement, Size and Type Irrigation Infrastructure
All wrapped into One Big Problem!
Some Solutions! Knowing your site Periodic Maintenance Wateruser Cooperation Partner Cooperation

There is no one size (or type) fits all. No project will perfectly fit a site. Expect a measure of disappointment, which should not be viewed failure. No one can account for the variability of every site. Appreciate the little things Overall completion cost (future maintenance) Keep it simple! Cost and length of time to repair. When in doubt, remember, no one knows your area as well as you.
In the end, we can only do our best and not expect to resolve all of the issues
