About the Hydropower Reform Coalition
Originally founded in 1992 as a loose association of conservation and recreation groups, the Hydropower Reform Coalition has grown into a broad consortium of more than 150 national, regional, and local organizations with a combined membership of over one million people. We represent stakeholders from canoeists to conservationists to lake homeowners.
Together, our efforts have protected or restored thousands of river miles, thousands of acres of watershed land, and countless opportunities for boating, fishing, and other forms of recreation. All of our members can - at no cost - draw on this vast reservoir of collective knowledge and experience to improve conditions on dammed rivers in their own backyards.
