The historic Columbia Basin Fish Accords establish a partnership among three federal action agencies (BPA, the Corps and Reclamation), six Northwest tribes and three states. The first Accords were signed in 2008, culminating two years of extensive negotiations that grew out of the sovereign collaboration ordered by U.S. District Court of Oregon Judge James Redden.
Funds are budgeting constructs that represent the program's commitments to allocate its budget to a particular agreement (Fish Accords), objective, or to otherwise earmark it. Funds often span fiscal years and have both expense and capital accounts. Funds give managers the ability to steer the program budget based on priorities.
At the heart of how BPA funds, monitors and reports on work performed under its Fish & Wildlife Program are work elements, metrics, and measures. In habitat work on the river tributaries, this work addresses each location’s limiting factors. This area of cbfish.org allows you to explore these items in detail and understand their relation to one another.
The Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Program consists of measures which can be implemented by BPA and other Federal agencies to protect, mitigate, enhance, and recover fish
and wildlife populations in the Columbia River Basin affected by the development and operation of hydroelectric projects on the Columbia River and its tributaries.
