Pursuant to Section 385.214 of Title 18 of the Code of Federal Regulations [18 C.F.R., Sec. 385.214 (Rule 214)] THE COALITION FOR THE DESCHUTES hereby moves to intervene in these hydroelectric dam licensing proceedings.

THE COALITION FOR THE DESCHUTES is a not-for-profit corporation incorporated under the Oregon Non-Profit Corporation Act on 8 January 1985 for “the organization and implementation of educational and advocacy activities which promote and protect the economic, recreational, and environmental future of the Deschutes River basin.” (from Article III ..

THE COALITION FOR THE DESCHUTES has been involved with land use actions on the Upper Deschutes since its inception. We have advocated for the protection in zoning variance hearings with Deschutes County. We have advocated for enhancement with the Oregon Dept of Fish and Wildlife. We have advocated for flow restoration with the Bureau of Reclamation, the State Joint Water Legislative Committee, Division of State Lands and the Oregon Dept of Water Resources.. We have advocated for the judicious application of hydroelectric sitings on the Upper Deschutes with your own Commission.
