Water is supplied to Quinsam Hatchery from Cold Creek by gravity pipeline.  The available excess head at the point of delivery to the facility is used to produce electricity through this micro hydroelectric turbine-generator unit.  The generated electrical power helps in reducing the facility's annual operating budget in which power for electric pumps is a significant element.  The project can also demonstrate the implementation and integration of small hydro technology into fish hatcheries.
