Rivers of Power: A Citizen’s Guide to River Restoration through Hydropower Reform

Hydro guides

From high mountain springs to lowland coastal creeks, California’s 194,000 miles of rivers and streams drain a vast, diverse landscape. Within their channels and along their banks, these waters support dozens of native fish and other aquatic species. In addition, millions of state residents and tourists annually flock to California rivers to hike, swim, boat and fish. These recreational opportunities renew individual spirits and bolster local economies.
