The Federal Water Pollution Control Act, amended in 1965 as the Federal Water Quality Act, called for standards to be established for protection and enhancement of water quality in waters of the US. In 1968 the Columbia River Thermal Effects Study was begun in response to adoption of temperature standards by Oregon and Washington that were inconsistent with one another. This study was authorized by the US Secretary of the Interior. In 1970 the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) was created within NOAA to replace the Bureau of Commercial Fisheries in the Department of Interior (DOI). Also in 1970, EPA was created, replacing the former Federal Water Quality Administration and was given authority for overseeing environmental protection, including water quality. In January 1971 EPA in cooperation with the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC, represented by Battelle Northwest) and NMFS released the publication entitled Columbia River Thermal Effects Study. Results of 51 new studies on biological effects were reviewed in this publication in addition to much significant past research. The studies completed for this review included research conducted by the Federal Water Quality Administration, NMFS, and the AEC. Impetus for this review came also from perceived changes in the Columbia River system.
