Deep Creek Hydroelectric Station

Since 1925, the Deep Creek Hydroelectric Station has provided the area with a pure, renewable energy source. Operated primarily for electricity generation, the station provides for incidental flood control, monitors water levels and temperature, and regulates the release of water. Together, Brookfield Renewable Energy and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources strive to meet the needs of Deep Creek residents, adventurers, and wildlife alike.
