The Impact of Hydroelectric Development on the Landscape of British Columbia from the Ron Waters Collection

A collection of colour slides taken by Ron Waters from the late 1950s to the early 1980s of hydroelectric development in British Columbia. The broader dissemination of these images is important in light of the current renegotiation period of the Columbia River Treaty (2014-2024) and the development of the Site C Dam. With the renegotiation of the Treaty taking place between 2014 and 2024, this project is an important record depicting the changes that have occurred.

The creation of the site has been funded in part by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, University of British Columbia, British Columbia History Digitization Program.
