Pacific Northwest Waterways Association

About the Company

Source: company website

PNWA is a collaboration of ports, businesses, and public agencies that combine their economic and political strength in support of navigation, energy, trade, and economic development throughout the Pacific Northwest. Established as Inland Empire Waterways Association in 1934, PNWA’s first act was to petition President Roosevelt and Congress for funds to secure a navigation lock at Bonneville Dam. PNWA then led the way for Congressional authorization and funding to build the remaining seven locks and dams on the Columbia and Snake Rivers.
