Waneta - Canada

The Waneta Dam is a concrete gravity-type hydroelectric dam on the Pend d’Oreille River in the Canadian province of British Columbia. It lies 9.5 kilometres (6 mi) downstream of Seven Mile Dam at the Pend d’Oreille’s confluence with the Columbia River. It is located about 12.5 kilometres (8 mi) southeast of Trail and 0.35 kilometres (0.2 mi) north of the U.S. border at Washington.

It supplies electric power to Teck Resources metallurgical operations at Trail, British Columbia and for BC Hydro which since 2010 has a 1/3 ownership of the facility. It is located near the mouth of the Pend d’Oreille River just before it empties into the Columbia River, slightly north of the Canada–United States border. The powerplant currently has four units and has a capacity of 450 megawatts.
