2007 Winners

  • The Clark Fork Hydroelectric Project (FERC License 2058), is owned and operated by Avista Utilities, and consists of the Cabinet Gorge and Noxon Rapids hydroelectric developments.

  • With the growing demands on the water in the Catawba-Wateree reservoirs and the new awareness of the Project's storage limits, the challenge became one of finding the operating scenario that would balance the competing resource interests.

  • When the New York Power Authority received a federal license in 1953 to build its first generating facility, known today as the St. Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt Power Project, it set a new standard in hydropower development by including an unprecedented degree of conservation and recreational features in its plans.

  • In 2000, a single Alabama Power employee with a heart for the environment and his community organized a river clean-up event that would later grow into the nationally-recognized Southern Company initiative, Renew Our Rivers. Since that time, over 7 million pounds of debris have been removed from the waterways of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi.
