Columbia River-Umatilla Solutions Taskforce

Drawing upon the work of the Umatilla Basin Commission and recent efforts in the State of Washington, this Oregon Solutions project convened partners to identify ways in which additional water withdrawals from the Columbia River can be done in a way to benefit both fish and farms, helping provide economic development opportunities in the agricultural sector in this part of Oregon.  Ecological benefits were described as including additional mainstem water at times when it is most needed as well as projects to supplement tributary flows and groundwater supplies.
