The Northwest Hydroelectric Facilities are located in the traditional territory of the Tahltan First Nation, approximately 1,000 kilometres northwest of Vancouver. The projects capture the energy produced by the natural flow and drop of the Iskut River and its tributaries to produce and deliver clean, renewable energy. The three facilities produce an aggregate of 277 megawatts of energy to the British Columbia power grid through BC Hydro’s 287-kV Northwest Transmission Line.

The 66-MW McLymont Creek Facility is located approximately 10 kilometres downstream from the Forrest Kerr Facility, on a tributary of the Iskut River. The intake structure directs the water into the power tunnel where three Francis turbines generate electricity.
