    Columbia River, largest river flowing into the Pacific Ocean from North America. The Columbia is one of the world’s greatest sources of hydroelectric power and, with its tributaries, represents a third of the potential hydropower of the United States. It is 1, miles (2, km) long. A River Captured explores the controversial history of the Columbia River Treaty and its impact on the ecosystems, indigenous peoples, contemporary culture, provincial politics and recent history of southeastern British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest.. Long lauded as a model of international cooperation, the Columbia River Treaty governs the storage and management of .

    Irrigators pump water from the river, reducing its flow. Perhaps the greatest threat to the salmon are dams that block migration. Over the past century huge dams have been built on the Columbia along with 55 more on its tributaries. The river has become a chain of reservoirs. Except at its mouth, only 70 km (44 mi) of the Columbia runs free. The Report on the Columbia River appeared eight years later (Columbia River and Minor Tributaries, ). Its sub-title, "A General Plan for the Improvement of the Columbia River and Minor Tributaries for the Purposes of Navigation and Efficient Development of Its Water Power, the Control of Floods, and the Needs of Irrigation," summarizes.

    Columbia River (essay) By William L. Lang The River For more than ten millennia, the Columbia River has been the most important and intensively used part of Oregon’s natural landscape. The river’s main stem gathers water from ten principal tributaries that drain , square miles in seven U.S. states and one Canadian province. Prior to entering the Columbia River Valley (ie. Gorge) my husband had attempted to describe its beauty. I found that my imagination floundered about trying to picture all that he described. Then we drove the gorgeous grape fiord covered valley and I was astounded by the 5/5(3).
