Saluda Hydro Project Factoid:

Only two bulldozers were used in the construction of the original dam, completed in 1930.

 

Resource Conservation Groups

Resource Groups are comprised of interested stakeholders committed working with each other and with SCE&G to identify project issues and to develop recommendations for addressing/resolving the issues. They address process issues and provide a forum for further discussion and cooperation.   Also, there will be smaller teams whose focus will be on resolution of specific ecological issues and related studies (Technical Committees).

There are seven resource conservation groups for this project:

Cultural Cultural RCG

Lake & Land Management Lake & Land Management RCG

Operations Operations RCG

Water Quality Water Quality RCG

Fisheries & Wildlife Fisheries & Wildlife RCG

Safety

Recreation

Announcements

The History Channel is airing a special on the efforts required in raising the crashed B-25 Mitchell from the waters of Lake Murray. The salvage and recovery efforts occurred late last year and early part of this year.

Islands (primarily Bomb Island) within Lake Murray were used as practice targets by Doolittle's Raiders before launching their raid on Japan. Doolittle's Raid was the United States first major strike on Japan after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Currently, there are 2 B-25's remaining in the murky waters of Lake Murray.

The show airs Tuesday, May 2 at 10:00.
