The Columbia River Basin drains water from a diverse landscape the size of France, from lush rainforests to craggy mountains to the high desert. The Columbia Basin also spans political boundaries, including the ceded lands of multiple tribes, Indian reservations, seven U.S. states, and Canada.

Fish and Wildlife Service contractSan Francisco: Biosystems Analysis, Inc., The estuary is a complex interaction of physical features (predominated by the energy balance between river flow and tidal forces), resultant changes in circulation, salinity intrusion, sediment processes, and ultimately the biological consequences of these changes.

Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) and the United States Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) are evaluating the environmental effects of the Columbia River Estuary Ecosystem Restoration Program (estuary restoration program).

This ongoing program, implemented by BPA and the Corps, referred to as the agencies. The Columbia River Estuary is an estuary and a bay on the Oregon–Washington border and the Pacific Coast of the United States.

If the Columbia River Estuary is defined by the region that experiences ocean tides, then the estuary extends up the Columbia River to Bonneville Dam and up the Willamette River to Willamette Falls (south of Portland at Oregon City, Oregon). For over 40 years, the Columbia River Estuary Study Taskforce (CREST) has been working with citizens, organizations and agencies along the Columbia River Estuary and the Oregon and Washington Coasts.

Our mission is bridging community and ecology on the Columbia River Estuary. A map of the Columbia River watershed with the Snake River highlighted in yellow and the Columbia River highlighted in blue.

The Columbia River Basin coverssquare miles and includes parts of seven states and one Canadian province. In its 1, mile course to the ocean, the river flows through four mountain ranges and drains more water.

The river rises in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, flows northwest and then south into the US state of Washington, then turns west to form most of the border between Washington and the state of Oregon before emptying into the Pacific Ocean.

The river is 1, miles (2, km) long, and Mouth: Pacific Ocean, at Clatsop County, Oregon. The Columbia River estuary is characterized by large amounts of allochthonous detritus from the adjacent river and ocean that is the primary source of organic matter driving ecosystem processes, with allochthonous organic matter supporting up to 84% of secondary production by the estuarine microbial populations (Simenstad et al.

The Columbia River estuary is a unique and important ecological resource. EPA's National Estuary Program (NEP) was established by Congress in in Clean Water Act amendments to improve the quality of estuaries of national significance.

The Columbia River estuary File Size: 2MB. Habitat Loss and Modification. Human activities over the last years have significantly altered the estuary and resulted in much habitat loss and modification.

Dams, dikes, maintenance dredging, urbanization, agriculture, forestry, and land use practices all contribute to this alteration.

An estuary is the area where the fresh water of a river meets the salt water of an ocean. In the Columbia River system, this occurs in the lower 46 river miles. In an estuary, the river has a direct, natural connection with the open sea. This transition from fresh to salt water creates a special environment that supports unique communities of plants and animals, specially adapted for life at.

The primary objective is to offer a comprehensive survey of the biological, hydrological, mathematical, and biochemical.produced by the Columbia River Estuary Data Development Program (CREDDP).

CREDDP has two purposes: to increase understanding of the ecology of the Columbia River Estuary and'to provide information useful in making land and water use decisions. The program was initiated by local governments and citizens who saw a need for a better information.The Pacific Ocean’s saline influence over the Columbia River Estuary extends to a point just east of Puget Island.

Within the river, the ocean’s tidal action can be measured up to the base of Bonneville Dam, which is approximately river miles upstream from the mouth of the Columbia.
