BPA Names Environment VPby Staff
Portland Business Journal, October 26, 2004
The Bonneville Power Administration has named a new vice president in charge of its environment, fish and wildlife programs.
Greg Delwiche has 20 years of experience in Columbia River energy and natural resource management, the Portland-based BPA said.
Delwiche manages an organization of about 120 people, responsible for guiding all of BPA's environmental activities, ranging from programs to improve conditions for fish and wildlife to sound construction practices for transmission lines. He has served as acting vice president of environment, fish and wildlife since April.
Delwiche worked for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in its Columbia River Reservoir Control Center from 1983 to 1991 before joining BPA in 1992 to manage its power and river operations planning function. Since 1998, he has been BPA's vice president of generation supply.
Delwiche is faced immediately with improving the contracting process for the salmon recovery effort in coordination with the Northwest Power and Conservation Council and with achieving a biologically sound, efficient plan of operations for the Federal Columbia River Power System. The latter will be guided by a biological opinion now under review by the U.S. District Court in Portland for compliance with the Endangered Species Act.
