Robert Moses Hydro-Electric Dam is a hydroelectric station in Niagara Falls, New York. The station diverts water from Niagara River above Niagara Falls and returns the water into the lower portion of the river near Lake Ontario.

This facility is not a typical dam, in that it was constructed not to control the flow of water in a natural river, but rather to contain a man-made reservoir which stores the water diverted through a tunnel from a point upstream on the Niagara River. The opposite boundary of this lagoon is another dam, the Lewiston Pump-Generating Plant, which houses a set of electrically powered pumps that can move water to another higher storage lake behind this second dam.
