The North Fork Stanislaus River Hydroelectric Development Project is a joint development project by Northern California Power Agency (NCPA) and Calaveras County Water District (CCWD). CCWD is the Licensee & Owner and NCPA is the Project Operator. The North Fork Stanislaus River Project combines water usage and electric power in an environmentally sound manner, plus provides recreation for Californians. Spanning 60 miles of the western slope of the Sierra Nevada, the Project ranges from the North Fork Diversion Dam at the alpine elevation of 6,700 feet to the Collierville Power Plant in the North Fork Stanislaus Canyon at 1,099 feet. In developing the project, NCPA and CCWD worked with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, California Department of Fish and Game, California Department of Water Resources, and various other federal, state and county agencies to create a multipurpose project of maximum benefit to mankind and the environment.
