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. This renewal grant would support the Coalition’s efforts to use the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s dam re-licensing process to improve river flows and remove unneeded dams. To accomplish its goals, the Coalition provides support to local river groups, commissions scientific and technical reviews of proposed dam licenses, educates decision makers on the merits of natural river flows, and engages the press.

for the Hydropower Reform Coalition
Founded in 1992, the Hydropower Reform Coalition (a fiscally sponsored project of American Rivers), is a diverse consortium of more than 160 national, regional, and local conservation and recreation organizations dedicated to protecting and restoring rivers affected by hydropower dams. Working together, the coalition has protected or restored thousands of river miles, thousands of acres of watershed land, and countless opportunities for boating, fishing, and other recreational experiences.
