Address:
Tippy Dam, Dilling Rd, Brethren, MI 49619, United States
Description:

ARCHITECT: Consumers Energy
CONSTRUCTED: 1918


Completed in 1918, Tippy Dam (known as Junction Hydro when it was built) was named after Charles W. Tippy, a board of directors chair for Consumers Power. Tippy is Consumer Energy’s second largest hydro dam producing up to 20,000 kilowatts and provding electricity to approximately 6,500 customers.

Tippy Dam was known for its innovation and design when built, but today, most of the people you will find around Tippy are not there for a tour.They are there fishing the very popular “tailwaters” (the water immediately flowing from the dam) trying to land that large salmon or steelhead.
