System Operation Review (DOE/EIS-0170) Regionwide

The System Operation Review (SOR) addresses four actions: (1) the need to develop a coordinated strategy for managing the multiple uses of the Federal Columbia River system (System Operating Strategy [SOS]); (2) the need to provide interested parties other than the management agencies with a long-term role in system planning (Forum); (3) the need to renew or change current Canadian Entitlement Allocation Agreements (CEAA); and (4) the need to renegotiate and renew the Pacific Northwest Coordination Agreement (PNCA).

In general, the goal of the SOR is to develop a system operating strategy and a regional forum for allowing interested parties, other than these Federal agencies, a long-term role in system planning. Another goal of the SOR is to provide the environmental analysis needed for the Federal agencies to sign new agreements for coordinating power generation - Pacific Northwest Coordination Agreement - and for allocating among Federal and non-Federal parties the return of Canadian Entitlement power to Canada.
