Conowingo Dam, lower Susquehanna river

The grand ole lady of the lower Susquehanna. Eleven turbine/generators with a combined maximum output of 530 MW or so. Also has two smaller house units for internal load. Construction started in 1926 with first unit on line in 1928. Original design was as a gravity dam, but after the resulting flood from the aftermath of hurricane Agnes in 1972 post tension anchors were added. She holds back a nominal 90 feet of head. Has 50 crest gates for river control.

Not the greatest picture:

It's said by some that the Hetch Hetchy Valley is just as beautiful and interesting as Yosemite Valley. Except it's been under 300 feet of water since the construction of the O'Shaughnessy Dam.

Many wish to dismantle and remove the dam (a five year project), despite the fact that it supplies 85% of the water needs to 2.4 million people (roughly 1/10 of the state's population) in the San Francisco region.

In the same area. A very impressive beaver dam in the Papineau-Labelle Reserve.
