The Calligan Creek Hydroelectric Project is located on Calligan Creek near the city of North Bend, WA. A newly licensed project, the August 1, 2013 order allows for the construction, operation, and maintenance of the 6-megawatt run-of-the-river hydropower operation. The project is located entirely on privately-owned timber land and flows for approximately 2.2 miles from the outlet at Calligan Lake to its confluence with the North Fork of the Snoqualmie River.

A relatively small development, the project involves the construction of a dam across Calligan Creek, an intake, a penstock, a powerhouse, a tailrace, a transmission line, and several access roads.
