The League

The League

Since 1964, the Columbia Basin Development League has supported the Bureau of Reclamation’s Columbia Basin Project and its future development.

The League is working toward a fully developed Columbia Basin Project that supports a robust regional and state economy and quality of life through efficient, well-maintained, affordable infrastructure and sustainable environmental stewardship.

As the nonprofit organization representing the interests of Columbia Basin Project stakeholders, the League fills a critical advocacy role to advance policy that benefits the Project, including:

  • Broad consensus on value of the Columbia Basin Project and plan for its continued, phased development;
  • Legislative, congressional, and agency actions that continue Project development and protect its multi-purpose benefits.

To this end, the League’s Board of Trustees, representing all geographic areas within Project boundaries, works with an Executive Director to strategize effective means of delivering timely, informative, fact-based and solution-oriented messages to Project stakeholders and influencers in government, business, and communities. The League plays a significant role in facilitating discussion and action among stakeholders.
