- Significance: Enloe Dam represents an early hydroelectric power generation facility in the Okanogan and Similkameen valleys. Mining and irrigated agriculture, both integral to the local economy, were the chief beneficiaries.

The facility was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in. Abstract. Overall abundance—catch plus escapement—of adult Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) in the Fraser River basin (about one quarter of the area of British Columbia [BC]) has decreased sharply for sockeye (O.

We consider the Pacific lamprey to be a culturally significant Species of Concern. Based on this information, Enloe Dam has potentially impeded lamprey and bull trout access to many miles of potential habitat above the dam. With the unanimous decision by a state panel to authorize a streamlined design/build process for Enloe Dam, the PUD’s 9-megawatt hydroelectric project on the Similkameen River is closer to becoming a reality.

NOAA Fisheries did not require fish passage at this project because there was little evidence that anadromous fish occurred historically above the falls located downstream of Enloe Dam. Licensee: Public Utility District No. 1 of Okanogan County.
