The 5-megawatt (MW) Pioneer Hydroelectric Project is located on the Ogden River near the City of Ogden, Weber County, Utah.

The water to operate the project comes from the Pineview dam, via the Ogden Canyon Conduit (flowline).  The dam is owned and operated by the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR).  However, the 5.5-mile-long flowline below the dam is jointly owned by PacifiCorp and the BOR.  The flowline conveys water to the project’s surge tank and to water users downstream of the Pineview reservoir.  A portion of the 5.5-mile-long flowline is located within the Cache National Forest, administered by the U.S. Forest Service (FS).
