    (e) Bypass or diversion channels for fish passage
    (f) Stream corridor and water body restoration
    (g) Managing underwater noise and energy (e.g. from pile driving, seismic, drilling, blasting) and,
    (h) Oher future proposed technical Standards.

    The period for making call-ups against the Standing Offer will be from date of issuance to March 31st, 2029.
