    Abstract: Economics of the Northwest and the Northwest Power Planning Council

    Mentor: Dr. Tom Karier, Economics

    The introduction of dams, flood control, and agricultural pollution in the Northwest has contributed to the degradation of fish and wildlife ecosystems along the Columbia and Snake Rivers. Hence, effective spending facilitates the restoration of fish and wildlife populations living in and around the once free flowing waters of these two rivers. The cooperative efforts of the Northwest Power Planning Council (NPPC), the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), and the Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Authority (CBFWA) allocate millions of dollars each year to save the rivers ecosystems. Thus, the process of selecting the large number of projects to be funded presents a complicated and somewhat daunting economic task. Additionally, distribution and allocation of funds demands accountability. This project will clarify the allocation of Bonneville Power Administration funding essential to the restoration and preservation of fish and wildlife habitat along the Columbia and Snake Rivers.
