Weeks Falls

Weeks Falls powerhouse

Eagle Creek Renewable Energy is a 50 percent partner in the Weeks Falls facility.  Weeks Falls is a 4,772-kilowatt hydroelectric generating station located on the South Fork Snoqualmie River in Washington State.  A small diversion dam directs some of the water from the river into a tunnel that connects to a powerhouse approximately 700 feet downstream, at the base of Weeks Falls.  The powerhouse, built in 1987, contains a single horizontal Kaplan unit.  The facility produces approximately 13 million kilowatt-hours of clean energy in a typical year.  The Weeks Falls facility operates under a license from the Federal Energy Regulatory Condition (FERC Project No. 7563) that expires in 2035.
