|Brief description of dataset location
|The BC Hydro Elko Project is a run-of-the-river facility located on the Elk River approximately 70 km east of Cranbrook and produces 73.0 GWh of electricity each year for 7300 homes (Figures 1 and 2, Appendix I). The headwaters of the Elk River originate at the Elk Lakes, 104 km north of Sparwood in the southern Rocky Mountains. The Elk River flows from Elk Lakes 185 km south to the Lake Koocanusa Reservoir and the Kootenay River.
