Spokane River Hydroelectric Project

HRA archaeologists surveying hydroelectric project reservoirs for satisfaction of FERC license requirements. HRA performed all phases of cultural resources compliance for Avista’s relicensing of five hyrdoelectric projects in eastern Washington and northern Idaho.

HRA worked with the Avista Corporation to produce a Historic Properties Management Plan for the Spokane River Hydroelectric Project in Northeast Washington and Northern Idaho. HRA also contributed to inventory and evaluation reports for this project, and served as expert witness in a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission administrative hearing. Throughout the project, HRA assisted Avista in consultation with the stakeholder tribes, federal and state agencies, and state historic preservation offices participating in the Cultural Resource Work Group. HRA is currently participating in the implementation of the license.
