Lake Hancock & Lake Calligan Hydro Plants Officially Opened

Snohomish County Public Utility District has commissioned and officially opened a pair of small hydroelectric power projects in Washington's Snoqualmie Valley, USA.

The 2 plants recently began production with a ceremony that included Snohomish PUD commissioners, employees and community members.  The produced power will primarily help Snohomish PUD meet increased demand during Washington's cold season.
