(updated January 22, 2004)

This page provides links to information regarding the proposed settlement of litigation challenging contracts BPA entered into in 2001. Related suits by other utilities were also involved. Primary among the issues were the benefits BPA provides to the residential and small farm customers of the region's Investor-Owned Utilities (IOUs) under the Northwest Power Act of 1980.
