Hydroelectric Power

Facilities for hydroelectric power are also primarily the responsibility of non-federal interests.  However, the Corps of Engineers may include hydroelectric power development in multipurpose projects when it complements the major ob­jectives of flood risk management or navigation.  Power generators and related equipment may be built into dams and reservoirs as integral parts of those projects.

The cost-share for hydroelectric options is subject to the same cost-share for the primary Corps mission area the primary project is being constructed under.
