The Fremont Canyon Powerplant consists of two hydraulic turbine-driven generators, with a combined capacity of 66,800 kilowatts. Water for power generation is conveyed to the powerplant by a 3-mile-long 18-foot-diameter, concrete-lined pressure tunnel. The tunnel branches to two 10.75-foot-diameter penstocks upstream of the powerplant. This conduit is controlled by a 14- by 18-foot fixed-wheel gate located 243 feet downstream from the inlet.
