"The Central Valley Project includes 11 hydroelectric generation facilities; the four Trinity River Division facilities (Trinity, Lewiston, Judge Francis Carr, and Spring Creek powerplants) generate approximately 30 percent of all CVP power and are comparatively efficient due to the high elevation of the reservoirs...Hydropower production is an authorized purpose of the CVP, but is subordinate to navigation, flood control, water supply, fish and wildlife, and other purposes."
