Description

PacifiCorp and its predecessor companies have managed and operated Bear Lake and the Bear River downstream since the early 1900’s. The system operation has evolved over the past 85 years from a joint irrigation and power project to an irrigation and flood control project with environmental and fish and wildlife issues becoming more important in recent years. This presentation will provide a perspective on the historical changes in river and lake operation and will address the impacts of recent flood and drought cycles on the legal, political and operational constraints imposed by the competing interests for Bear Lake and Bear River water.
