Nuyakuk River Hydroelectric Concept

Nuyakuk River Hydroelectric Concept


The Cooperative has initiated the 2-year natural resource study program associated with the feasibility assessment for the proposed Nuyakuk Hydroelectric Project. During 2023 and 2024 a series of fisheries, water quality, terrestrial, Cultural and recreation surveys will be taking place near the falls as well as in some of the villages near the potential Project location. What follows is a holistic schedule for the fieldwork for the 2023 season. It is important to note that, while this schedule is formal, it is also dependent on uncontrollable variables such as weather conditions. As such, schedules for some studies may flex a bit depending on daily access to the site and specific study overlap.

Nuyakuk Monthly Field Schedule

This proposed run-of-river concept will generate year-round and produce up to 12 MWs of power, depending on the season and associated river flow.  Electricity and optical fiber would be provided to the communities of Dillingham, Aleknagik, Koliganek, New Stuyahok, Ekwok and Levelock, also supporting the electric and communications needs of Bristol Bay’s incredible wild salmon industry in these communities.
