Enloe Hydroelectric Project

Columbia River Basin; Similkameen River, Okanogan County, Washington

Project Profile

Okanongan PUD would use the existing Enloe Dam to divert water into a newly constructed powerhouse on the left bank (looking downstream) of the Similkameen River. NOAA Fisheries did not require fish passage at this project because there was little evidence that anadromous fish occurred historically above the falls located downstream of Enloe Dam.
