The Columbia River Treaty (CRT, Treaty), signed by Canada and the U.S. in 1961, was developed to coordinate flood control and optimize electrical energy production in the Columbia Basin.

This web site provides an overview of the Treaty  and the supporting CRT organization, along with information on Treaty projects and operations, and links of interest to the CRT. It is jointly sponsored by the CRT's U.S. and Canadian entities, maintained by the Engineering Committee of the Permanent Engineering Board, hosted and maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Northwestern Division, as well as maintained with input from Bonneville Power Administration.
