The Columbia River flows for more than 1,200 miles, beginning at the base of the Rockies in British Columbia, and eventually running to the Pacific Ocean at Washington State’s Cape Disappointment.

The river originates between the Selkirk Mountains and the Continental Divide in Canada. Interestingly, the river flows north for its first 200 miles before changing course and flowing south toward the U.S. and Canada border. Continuing southeast, it eventually meets with the Snake River, at which point it heads southwest towards the Pacific Ocean.

Long before the Washington Territory was settled, Columbia River Indians made use of irrigation to cultivate fields of corn and potatoes in the area now known as Ephrata. In the 1870s, Northwest farmers began to use the waters of the Columbia to benefit their farming. By the 1920s, major irrigation projects along the Columbia and its tributaries, the Yakima, Wenatchee, and Umatilla rivers, were operated on federal funds. During the 1930s and 40s, construction of large dams, like Grand Coulee, increased the irrigated lands on the Columbia Plateau exponentially. In 1948, the Columbia Basin project began transporting water to more than 600 thousand acres of farmland.

The Columbia River’s annual flow is 160 million acre-feet of water. On its journey to the sea, the Columbia River flows through temperate rain forests and semi-arid plateaus that only average six inches of rain a year. There are more than 400 dams constructed on the Columbia and its tributaries to date.
