About the Hydropower Reform Coalition

Founded in 1992, the Hydropower Reform Coalition is a diverse consortium of more than 160 national, regional, and local organizations with a combined membership of more than one million people. We represent stakeholders from canoeists to conservationists to lake homeowners with an interest in restoring rivers that are impacted by hydropower dams. 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.
