The Treaty, in Plain Language

Plain language summary

The Skagit River Treaty (sometimes referred to as the ‘High Ross Treaty’) requires the United States to limit the size of the reservoir for the Ross Dam’s hydroelectric power generation to the boundary of the Canada-United States Border. The treaty also requires Canada to provide electricity to the United States to offset the loss of electricity generation that could have been realized if the Ross Dam reservoir had extended across the border into Canada.
