Enloe Dam Hydroelectric Project

 

 

As we move forward with electrifying Enloe Dam, Okanogan PUD, commissioners and staff want to make sure our ratepayers have correct information regarding the Enloe Dam Project.  Our recent political campaigns have demonstrated the "alternative facts" are often considered as truth.  While we have maintained an Enloe Dam page on our website, we understand that the volume and technical nature of those documents may be overwhelming to some.  This Fact Check addition is intended to address current questions and comments from our ratepayers and will be updated on a regular basis as we proceed through the Project.
