Summary

Significance: The Cove Hydroelectric Development encompasses a unique flume system that was constructed with great effort in a remote landscape; captured a natural water source and used innovative design methods to eke additional hydroelectric power out of a relatively short section of the Bear River; was an early example of a low-head, high-volume hydroelectric complex in Idaho; and operated continuously for 87 years.
