The Snoqualmie Falls on the Snoqualmie River between Snoqualmie and Fall City are one of Washington's most popular scenic attractions. The height of the waterfall is 268 ft (82 m). More than 1.5 million visitors come to the falls each year.
Currently, two powerplants operate at this site.
Powerplant 1 was built in 1898 and operates at the base of the falls embedded in the rock.
Powerplant 2 was built in 1911 and is located a short distance downstream of the falls.
Most of the river is diverted into the powerplants, but in spring the river is high enough to flow
across the entire precipice, which creates an almost blinding spray at times. During high water,
the falls take on a curtain form.
