Riverwood Dam

Dam serving a power plant

Also known as Clare Dam and located north of Noblesville around 211th Street, this low-head dam was built in 1922 as a hydro-electric dam but today provides cooling water for a natural gas power plant. It is owned by Duke Energy and alters the river for 3.3 miles upstream.

Dam Safety! Never go near low-head dams. Water flows swiftly over the wall-like structures and create vortex currents that can trap even the strongest swimmers under water.

Portage: There is a formal portage path on the river left side.
