North Central Washington public utility districts welcomed a high-level delegation from the International Commission on Large Dams last weekend. About 50 experts from China, Russia, Japan, the Congo, South Africa, Sweden and Ukraine visited Wanapum, Rocky Reach, Wells and Grand Coulee dams.

The folks at Chelan County PUD invited me out to take a tour of Rocky Reach Dam with the delegation. Bill Christman, the engineering services manager at the PUD, said it was an opportunity to demonstrate the operating efficiencies and the balance with the environmental concerns. In many parts of the world, those concerns tend to be less of a factor.
