Overview
American Rivers' Hydropower Reform Coalition is a consortium of more than 150 conservation and recreation groups focused on protecting and restoring rivers from harm caused by dams. The coalition uses the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's dam relicensing process and the designation of wild and scenic rivers as the means of protecting and restoring rivers. This grant would support that work with a focus on four river systems with many dams whose licenses will be renewed in the coming years: the Columbia/Snake, Sacramento, San Joaquin, and Klamath. Additionally, coalition members will work to protect 1,100 miles of rivers in four states.
