TitleColumbia River; a comprehensive report on the development of the water resources of the Columbia River Basin for irrigation, power production, and other beneficial uses in Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming
Description399 p. Prepared by the U. S. Bureau of Reclamation, this document outlines a plan for the use of water and other physical resources of the Columbia River Basin. Presented in the report are descriptions of the basin's natural resources, its people, their use of the resources, as well as related investigations and summaries on affiliated problems and possibilities. As to use of physical resources, the principal emphasis is upon water utilization, for example the provisional use of water as required in the case of migratory fish, hydroelectric power production, and for navigation on the lower Snake and Columbia Rivers. This 1947 edition was issued in advance of its publication as a Congressional Document; it includes black and white photos, and numerous maps covering power facilities, developed and undeveloped land, and water resources.
