Does the Council discourage hydropower?
No. The Council is commissioned to balance fish and wildlife needs with energy needs, and has developed the Fish and Wildlife Program and Energy Plan to reflect this balance. Hydropower is a vital clean energy source, which the Council supports while still protecting critical habitat for fish and wildlife.
