2014 NWHA Fall Workshop & Tour
October 29-30, 2014
The Davenport Hotel
Embracing our Past--Planning for the Future
This year's Fall Regional Workshop on October 30 will focus on extending the longevity of our legacy hydropower projects through upgrades, refurbishment and life extensions, while meeting needs of inland fisheries and safety concerns.
An update on federal issues and a current perspective of regional issues will open the workshop. A panel discussion on Hydro's Culture of Safety will examine several approaches to increasing safety awareness in the industry, including workforce behavior associated with infrastructure designs, memorializing workforce knowledge for the new generation of workers and examples of safety programs from other industry sectors.
While last year's workshop focused on salmon issues, this workshop will address the inland fishery issues that face operators in the region. The tour of Avista facilities in downtown Spokane, followed by a social nearby on the afternoon of the 29th provides an opportunity to network with your colleagues in a park setting.
