Green Springs was placed in service in 1960 and has helped meet expanding power demands in southern Oregon and northern California. It is part of the US Bureau of Reclamation’s (USBR) Rogue River Basin Project – Talent Division in Oregon.

The generator was rewound and the switchyard rehabilitated in 1993. The facility is maintained and operated by USBR and the project irrigation features are maintained and operated by Talent Irrigation District.

The new modification work is expected to start in October 2010 and will take approximately two months to complete.
