Columbia River Treaty Review Process
This page contains information drawn from a variety of sources regarding the history of the Columbia River Treaty (CRT) and the process for its review.
As stated on the CRT Review home page:
"The year 2024 is a significant date for the Columbia River Treat. It marks the end of 60 years of pre-paid flood control space from Canada. In addition, either Canada or the United States can terminate most of the provisions of the Treaty any time on or after Sep. 16, 2024, with a minimum 10 years’ written advance notice (hence, the reference to 2014).
"Due to the importance of these issues, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Bonneville Power Administration, the agencies responsible for implementing the Treaty for the United States on behalf of the U.S. Entity, are conducting a multi-year effort to study these post-2024 Treaty issues. This effort is called the 2014/2024 Columbia River Treaty Review."
