Proposals sought for watershed restoration program

$1 million is available for 2009

Herald and News April 9, 2009

The Bureau of Reclamation Klamath Basin Area Office, in partnership with other state and federal agencies, has $1 million in funding for the Klamath River Watershed Restoration Program for 2009.

The Bureau is requesting proposals to restore the Klamath River ecosystem, help enhance populations of threatened Klamath River coho salmon and endangered shortnose and Lost River suckers, and further the federal government’s tribal trust responsibilities as they relate to natural resources in the Klamath River watershed.

The Bureau will consider funding potential projects that enhance and restore habitat conditions, improve water quality, remove fish passage barriers, reduce entrainment through installation of fish screens and result in water conservation efficiencies.

The Request for Proposal is available online at www.grants.gov (solicitation number 09SF200023) and proposals must be submitted by May 15. For more information, contact Chuck Korson at 880- 575 or e-mail ckorson@mp.usbr.gov
