The Council invites your review and comment on the recommendations the Council received to amend its 2014 Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program. Please submit your comments on the recommendations no later than February 8, 2019.
Consistent with the Northwest Power Act of 1980, the Council develops and periodically amends its fish and wildlife program for the Columbia River Basin to protect and enhance fish and wildlife affected by the development and operation of hydroelectric facilities, while assuring the Pacific Northwest an adequate, efficient, economical, and reliable power supply. The Act requires the Council to call for recommendations to amend the program at least every five years prior to the Council’s review of its regional electric power and conservation plan.
Last May, the Council issued a call for program amendment recommendations. The deadline for submissions was December 13, 2018. The Council now seeks public comment on the recommendations, as required by the Northwest Power Act.
We appreciate your interest in the Council’s fish and wildlife program.
