Columbia River Treaty Review
BPA and Corps Open House
Wed., May 8, 3:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Hampton Inn, 495 S Capitol Blvd.
The U.S. and Canada entered into the Columbia River Treaty in 1964 to coordinate flood risk reduction and hydropower production. Terms of the Treaty will be open to change in 2024 if either nation gives 10 years' advance notice. The Bonneville Power Administration and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are now reviewing the Treaty to recommend a course of action to the U.S. State Department.
Current Treaty terms have had little impact on the Snake River basin including the Boise River, but new Treaty terms could have a profound impact - one that IRU is concerned about.
