We, the United States, have a treaty with Canada governing the management of the Columbia River. It deals with pertinent issues — flood control, hydroelectricity, dams, water storage and sharing the costs and benefits of same. A fine treaty in its day, many say, but far past its prime, negotiated during the Eisenhower administration and ratified in 1964. Many agree, as the treaty nears the end of its run, it needs to be “modernized.”
