Summary

Significance: It is locally important because of its influence, along with the associated Noxon Rapids Hydroelectric Development, on the local environment, landscape and economy. The facility is also important in the history of the Washington Water Power Company, now Avista Corporation. The powerhouse interior equipment represents late 1950s state of the art technology, now obsolete and soon to be replaced and upgraded with 1990s technology.
