Clark Canyon Dam Hydro Electric Project Montana 4.7MW
The Clark Canyon Hydroelectric Project will use water that is currently released from the reservoir into the Beaverhead River. The project will operate in a run-of-release mode with no daily storage. The new powerhouse will contain 2 Francis turbines able to use water in the range of 88 cfs to 700 cfs. NES took over the management of the design and then completed a separate redesign of the project. A key aspect of the design of this project included in-depth interaction with the Bureau of Reclamation.
