Columbia Basin Project. The Columbia Basin Project serves aboutacres in east central Washington. The main facilities of the project include Grand Coulee Dam, Franklin D. Roosevelt Lake, three power plants, four switchyards, and a pump-generating plant.

Primary irrigation facilities include the Feeder Canal, Banks Lake, the Main, West, East High, and East Low canals, O’Sullivan Dam. The Columbia Basin Project is a multi-purpose, federally authorized Bureau of Reclamation project located in central-eastern Washington State with diverse and direct benefit to local, state, and national economies.

The largest of Reclamation’s Projects in the United States, the Columbia Basin Project generates over $4 billion in annual, cumulative economic activity (not including power generation).

The Columbia Basin Project is located in the central part of Washington State in the counties of Adams, Douglas, Franklin, Stevens, Okanogan, Grant, Lincoln, and Walla Walla. The primary feature of the project is Grand Coulee Dam, which is located on the main stem of the Columbia River about 90 miles west of : Joe Simonds.

In addition to boosting production of foodstuffs, the Columbia Basin Project has brought hydroelectric energy to a power-hungry section of the country, and the generators at Grand Coulee are helping the farmers to pay the cost of the development of project lands for irrigation.

Some of the generation produced by the Bureau of Reclamation is designated for the use of the irrigation project. This is known as ‘Reserve Power’. Big Bend Electric Cooperative is working with federal agencies and the East Columbia Basin Irrigation District on contract language that insures this preferential treatment.

Basin Electric was the first utility in the nation to require that strip-mined land be returned to rolling countryside. That requirement was written into Basin Electric's first coal contract long before rules and regulations on mined land reclamation were enacted.

Columbia Basin Electric has grown from its original membership of roughly to over 3, members and is part of a nationwide group of RUS Financed cooperatives employ people to provide electric service to 8 million Americans.

Columbia Basin Electric has 18 local employees. When fully developed, the Columbia Basin Reclamation Project will reclaim aver 1, acres of land, regulate the flow of the Columbia River far the benefit of downstream power plants and navigation, and develop electric energy to be used in pumping for irrigation and far other purposes, on the project.

Development of by-product power in the Columbia Basin reclamation project. Today, the Columbia Basin Project is the largest water reclamation project in the United States, providing irrigation water toacres and generating 6, megawatts of hydropower.

Agriculture flourishes because of the abundance of water, fertile soils, sunshine and the day growing season. The Columbia Basin Project is an immense irrigation development in central Washington state that provides water from the Columbia River to aboutacres (, hectares) on the Columbia project is in the Big Bend area of the river, which includes the cities of Ephrata, Quincy, Moses Lake, and Othello.

According to W. Gale Matthews, a longtime resident and businessman in Ephrata, the idea for what would become the Columbia Basin Reclamation Project came from attorney William M.

the spring ofa group of locals gathered in Clapp’s law offices in Ephrata to discuss America’s involvement in World War I and the desire to grow more crops to support the war effort. The net result of the “Munchausen” article in the Wenatchee Daily World and the organization of the Columbia Basin Irrigation League was that from that time there were two camps each advocating the reclamation of the Columbia Basin Project, the Ephrata group with the Grand Coulee Dam as its proposed source and the Irrigation League with the.

Freeman Eastern Washington College of Education, Cheney The Columbia Basin Project, situated in central Washington, has two primary purposes: the production of hydroelectric power and the reclamation of arid lands.

According to the federal Bureau of Reclamation the yearly value of the Columbia Basin Project is $ million in irrigated crops, $ million in power production, $20 million in flood damage prevention, and $50 million in recreation. The project itself involves costs that are difficult to determine.
