This film, A River Loved, was produced by Oregon State University Water Resources Program graduate student Julie Elkins Watson (shown here auditioning for the film version of 99 Luftballoons). I’ll let her describe it in her own words.
The Columbia River has been successfully managed by the United States and Canada for hydropower and
flood control since the 1960s. The Columbia River Treaty is an inspirational example of international cooperation; however, needs and values for the basin have changed since the 1960s.
