      Water resources: issues concerning expanded irrigation in the Columbia Basin Project: briefing report to Congressional requesters , The Office in English. The Columbia River System is a vast and complex combination of Federal and non-Federal facilities used for many purposes including power production, irrigation, navigation, flood control, recreation, fish and wildlife habitat and municipal and industrial water supply. Each river use competes for the limited water resources in the Columbia River. In addition to water supply, water quality is also an important issue in our urban, suburban, rural and agricultural areas throughout the region. Featured Publications Food-Energy-Water: Innovations in Storage for Resilience in the Columbia River Basin. The Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin (ICPRB) is an agency composed of commissioners representing the federal government, the states of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of ICPRB mission is to enhance, protect, and conserve the water and associated land resources of the Potomac River basin and its tributaries through regional and.

The Forecast will help OCR strategically fund water supply projects by improving understanding of where additional water supply is most critically needed, now and in the future. Introduction. The Columbia River Basin provides habitat for salmon and steelhead, essential components of a healthy ecosystem and critical to Indian tribes and local communities.

Loss of quality habitat because of pressures from population growth threaten fish numbers and the overall health of the basin. With this Critical Conservation Area designation, USDA will build on existing strong partnerships in the basin to work with agricultural producers to improve water quality.

- COLUMBIA RIVER BASIN - MAJOR FEDERAL DAMS The Columbia River Basin Major Federal Dams The Columbia drainssquare miles in the United States and Canada. Runoff: That part of precipitation, snowmelt, or irrigation water that runs off the land into streams or other surface water.

Streamflow: Streamflow refers to the rate. This forecast is used by water management agencies – U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, BPA, and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation – to determine how much water is released for power, irrigation, and fish. The latest CRITFC water supply forecast: Columbia River at The Dalles is 95% of normal for the April-July runoff period.

No studies have yet examined regional water resource vulnerability in the CRB that simultaneously considers water supply, quality, and demand. Here we examine all three dimensions of water resource vulnerability in the US portion of the Columbia River basin (CRB), the largest river basin in the Pacific Northwest, at the scale of the county.

We investigated water resource vulnerability in the US portion of the Columbia River basin (CRB) using multiple indicators representing water supply, water demand, and water quality. Based on the US county scale, spatial analysis was conducted using various biophysical and socio-economic indicators that control water vulnerability.

Water supply vulnerability and water demand vulnerability. In Congress created the Columbia Basin Project in central Washington, the largest irrigation project to divert water from the mainstem Columbia River. The project is managed by the Bureau of Reclamation and the Interior Department.
