The Award

This Award was established in 2009 by the NWHA Board of Directors to recognize the recipients for their lasting contributions to the Pacific Northwest hydroelectric industry through leadership and service. The Award honors the memory of Pamela E. Klatt, who served the industry for over 25 years as an environmental planner, long time NWHA Board member, and strategic advisor to licensees and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission staff. She influenced many with her high standards of excellence and broad grasp of the complexities of hydroelectric licensing and environmental compliance. Her contributions to the industry and convivial spirit leave an enduring legacy acknowledged annually by this Award.
