Project Overview


The Upper Columbia River Project is a special place to many people with historical, cultural, economical, and recreational significance. When people care about a place, they have a stake in what goes on there.

In 2006, Teck American entered into a voluntary agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to fund and conduct a remedial investigation and feasibility study of the Upper Columbia River, which consists of the section of the river from the Grand Coulee Dam to the U.S./Canadian border.

This study is carried out under the oversight of the EPA, with participation of the Canadian government, the U.S. Department of the Interior, the State of Washington, and the Spokane and Confederated Colville Tribes.
