Abstract

The Thief River Falls Dam MN 00502 is located on the Red Lake River in Thief River Falls, Minnesota. The powerhouse and tailrace are part of the original dam, built in approximately 1890. The present dam was built immediately downstream of the original dam (which remains submerged in the pool upstream). The present hydropower faci1ities were installed and put into operation in 1927. The output capacity at the present hydroelectric facility is 500 kW at a rated head of 14.0 feet. The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of upgrading the total hydropower capacity at the site.
