Canyon Ferry Dam
Summary: Canyon Ferry Dam and Powerplant are the principal structures of the Canyon Ferry Unit of the Helena-Great Falls Division of the Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program (Missouri River Basin Project). The Canyon Ferry Unit is a multipurpose project which makes an important contribution to the power supply, flood control, irrigation, and recreation in the Upper Missouri Basin. Canyon Ferry Dam and Reservoir were originally designed primarily for irrigation storage and power production. The reservoir is now operated also for flood control in accordance with agreements with the Corps of Engineers. Canyon Ferry Dam is the key unit in providing irrigation water to the Helena Valley Pumping Plant. The powerplant also provides power for the operation of the Crow Creek Pumping Station, an irrigation project obtaining water from the Missouri River some 13 miles upstream from the head of the reservoir, near Townsend, Montana.
