UncertaintyHow might operational decisions and other mainstem habitat actions maintain and improve focal populations of anadromous fish, resident fish, and wildlife?
ThemeHabitat mainstem
Criticality Level Priority
Rationale This is an important uncertainty because much effort and money has been and likely will continue to be spent on efforts to restore habitat for focal species in mainstem habitats. Can these efforts be enhanced by operational changes? Are there operational changes that negate the benefit of habitat improvements? Are there operational changes that are more effective under different climate regimes (e.g., La Niña)? Resolving this uncertainty will be particularly important under projected impacts of climate change.
