Hydroelectric power, shipping, irrigation and salmon fishing.
The Columbia River is the largest river in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. The river rises in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, Canada. It flows northwest and then south into the US state of Washington, then turns west to form most of the border between Washington and the state of Oregon before emptying into the Pacific Ocean. The river is 1,243 miles (2,000 km) long, and its largest tributary is the Snake River. Its drainage basin is roughly the size of France and extends into seven U.S. states and a Canadian province.
By volume, the Columbia is the fourth-largest river in the United States; it has the greatest flow of any North American river draining into the Pacific. The river’s heavy flow and its relatively steep gradient gives it tremendous potential for the generation of electricity. The 14 hydroelectric dams on the Columbia’s main stem and many more on its tributaries produce more hydroelectric power than those of any other North American river.

“A River Loved” is a documentary film that tells the story of the Columbia River and the diverse people and interests in the basin.
After watching the film at the 2011 Symposium on Columbia River Governance (in Kimberley, BC), over 90% of people reported that they walked away with a better understanding of others’ perspectives and interests. Just as many (over 90%) said they thought others who see this film will understand their point of view better. Finally, many people who watched the film (~70%) said that they either refined or came up with a new idea about how to manage the Columbia while watching the film.
I made this film as part of my Master’s work in Water Resources Policy & Management at Oregon State University. I greatly enjoyed the opportunity to talk to so many wonderful people in the PNW while making this film, and I was thrilled that I could play some small part in helping facilitate dialogue towards the future of this beautiful region! It is my hope that this film will continue to spark dialogue and foster a deeper understanding of the benefits that can be shared in the Columbia River Basin.
—-More Info about the Columbia River—-
The Columbia River has been successfully managed by the United States and Canada for hydropower and flood control since the 1960s. The Columbia River Treaty is an inspirational example of international cooperation; however, needs and values for the basin have changed since the 1960s.
Many values for the river, including salmon migration, ecosystem services, aesthetics, recreation, and cultural value were not included in the original treaty. Furthermore, the treaty was negotiated by federal entities, and important actors- from tribes to regional stakeholders- were not actively included in the process.
Today, these topics are being discussed throughout the basin. In 2024, the flood control provisions of the Columbia River Treaty will expire. This creates the perfect opportunity for all the stakeholders on both sides of the border to come together and have a conversation about future management of the Columbia.

An examination of the Columbia River and its development. Woody Guthrie was hired by BPA in 1941 to write the songs for this movie, but its production was delayed by World War II. Produced in 1949 in black and white, this film contains rare footage of Grand Coulee Dam construction, Indian fishing at Celilo Falls and the 1948 Vanport flood.
VICE’s Ryan Duffy went to Colombia to check out a strange and powerful drug called Scopolamine, also known as “The Devil’s Breath.” It’s a substance so intense that it renders a person incapable of exercising free will. The first few days in the country were a harrowing montage of freaked-out dealers and unimaginable horror stories about Scopolamine. After meeting only a few people with firsthand experience, the story took a far darker turn than we ever could have imagined.
