Columbia River Treaty info session in Revy

The Columbia Basin Trust is seeking to raise awareness about the Columbia River Treaty (CRT) with a Basin-wide information tour, including a stop in Revelstoke on Nov. 7.

The Columbia Basin Trust is seeking to raise awareness about the Columbia River Treaty (CRT) with a Basin-wide information tour, including a stop in Revelstoke on Nov. 7.

The CRT is a 1964 agreement between Canada and the US that coordinates flood control and hydroelectric generation on either side of the border. In 2014, either party has the option to give notice that they plan to terminate the treaty in 2024. Both Canada and the US are now studying the plan and exploring future options.

“These information sessions will help people who live in the Canadian portion of the Columbia Basin better understand what the CRT is, how it works and what considerations exist for the future,” said Neil Muth, CBT President and CEO.

In addition to the presentation in Revelstoke and other communities, the CBT will also host online sessions.
