Series documents the application process for permission to appropriate surface water for hydroelectric projects. Individuals, local governments, or hydroelectric company apply to the state of Oregon, and often the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, for licenses to construct and operate hydroelectric projects.
Series includes applications, correspondence, hearing testimony and transcripts, reports and feasibility studies, environmental impact reports, statements supporting or opposing the projects, maps, and photographs.
