Grand Coulee Dam is located on the Columbia River and it is central to the operation of the Columbia Basin Project. The dam's generators produce approximately 20 billion kilowatts of electricity in an average water year, enough to supply more than 1 million homes. In addition to hydroelectric production, the multipurpose Grand Coulee Dam provides irrigation, flood control, recreation, fish and wildlife, and other benefits.
