I thought you were smarter than that.
Presuming you're not:
Mountains and valleys (great for filling up with dammed water) are
the predominant geological feature of the areas of the Columbia and
Snake rivers where those hydro dams are located.
Mountains and valleys are *not* the predominant geological feature
of the Great Plains states, or those uber-mountainous states like
Louisiana and Mississippi.
