The US Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) is carrying out investigations at Clark Canyon Dam to help determine the viability of hydropower development at the project.

The work is being conducted in conjunction with Symbiotics, LLC, who was issued a license in August 2009 through the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to develop hydropower at the dam.

Clark Canyon Dam is located on the Beaverhead River in the state of Montana. Completed in 1964, the USBR-owned dam is operated and maintained by the East Bench Irrigation District.
