Drawdown Regional Economic Workgroup (DREW) Products

The potential economic effects of actions related to the lower Snake River have been analyzed by numerous entities throughout the region. To reduce conflicting analyses and pool resources for a more efficient effort, the Corps convened the Drawdown Regional Economic Workgroup (DREW). The purpose of DREW is to develop a combined regional economic analysis. Members of DREW include the Corps, Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), Bureau of Reclamation (BoR), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Northwest Power Planning Council (NPPC), the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission (CRITFC), and representatives of other interested groups. The DREW meetings, held in various locations throughout the region, on roughly a bi-monthly basis, were regularly advertised and open to the public. Members of the public and representatives of various interest groups regularly participated in and contributed to these meetings.
