  • Mixed water supply conditions expected to affect hydropower outlook in Pacific Northwest
    on April 8, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    On April 1, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Northwest River Forecast Center (NWRFC) released its latest water supply forecast for the 2021 water year, which runs through September. The forecast shows near-average water supply in the northern half of the Columbia River Basin and below-average supply in the southern half. Abnormal to severe drought, particularly in Oregon, affected some regions in the southern half of the Columbia River Basin. Overall, EIA expects the forecast of near-to-below normal water supply across the region to decrease the electricity generated from hydropower this summer.
