The purpose in this appendix is to forecast power loads, generation, and transmission for the Columbia-North Pacific Region as they relate to the future use of water. These measures of power development are related to other water and land uses through their modification of water supplies of the region. The impact on water supplies is twofold. First, the development of hydroelectric capability has a major influence on use of water supplies for other purposes. In many instances it is a major determinant for water control, where the conflict with other water uses is slight. Second, the development of thermal electric capability will require a water supply for steam condensation which must be considered with use of water supplies for other purposes.
