Powerdale Dam Decommissioning

With our own Condit Dam project in the works, some might be interested in the project across the big river. Note that the Columbia Land Trust sponsored Powerdale Open House event will not be a traditional meeting format. It will be a true open house, which means you can show up at any time between 5 and 7 pm to learn about the coming land transfer and make your recommendations on the future management strategy. Show up at 5, however, to hear a welcome and introduction by the CLT staff. Thanks to Pat for keeping us 'in the know'.

PacifiCorp Powerdale Dam Decommissioning and Land Transfer

Community Information Meeting

When: Wednesday, December 2, 2009 at 5:00 pm

Where: Hood River Valley Adult Center

2010 Sterling Place Hood River, OR

Kathleen Room

Columbia Land Trust is hosting a community meeting to discuss transfer of the lands associated with the Powerdale Hydroelectric Project and proposed management strategies for those lands.

In 2012, it is anticipated that PacifiCorp, owners of the project, will transfer their associated project lands to Columbia Land Trust, Hood River County and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to ensure a future that benefits fish and wildlife, and retains existing recreational uses.

Overall management strategies, restoration project goals and activities, and recreational uses will be discussed. Please come share your thoughts. A representative from PacifiCorp will also be in attendance to discuss the decommissioning of the Project.
