This resource is an assessment of the impacts of development and operation of the Columbia River Hydroelectric System on mainstream riverine processes and salmon habitats. The report consists of three separate, but closely related, studies: 1) identify the amount of mainstem river salmon spawning and juvenile rearing habitat lost to development and operations of the Columbia River hydroelectric system, 2) identify the types of ecological modifications that have occurred, and 3) suggest areas or actions with particular potential for restoration of riverine habitat.
