Significance: The Croton Hydroelectric Plant spillway was a key design feature of this electrical generation complex, an important example of the work of William G. Fargo, a Jackson, Michigan civil engineer who specialized in the design of small and mid-sized hydroelectric plants in the Midwest in the early Twentieth Century. The spillway gates permitted the plant operators to control and regulate the flow of the Muskegon River and the level of Croton Pond.
