Collaborative Solutions for the Mighty Columbia

Heejun Chang
Professor of Geography and Fellow of the Institute for Sustainable Solutions at PSU

The highly developed Columbia is a vast river basin that for decades has been mired with seemingly unsolvable problems. The stresses of climate change, urban growth and regulatory conflicts only multiply these problems. Any viable solutions will require unprecedented collaboration and examination of all of the issues at not one but many scales. As a model for how to go forward, a collaboration of Portland State researchers -- engineers, social and natural scientists -- is examining three sub-basins for vulnerabilities in water supply, demand and quality, engaging stakeholders in diagnosing and solving complex water problems.
