USGS Columbia River Research Laboratory

The Columbia River Research Laboratory was established in 1978, tracing its roots to the previous Reservoir Program of the Fish and Wildlife Service, in the Columbia River Gorge east of Portland. The CRRL, the Center’s largest field station, carries out research throughout the American West, including Puget Sound, the Columbia River Basin, the Klamath River Basin, and the Sacramento Bay Delta.
