moment in measurement in basic terms to the big hydroelectric works at Niagara Falls, the Conowingo Dam around the Susquehanna River used to be celebrated as a outstanding feat of contemporary engineering whilst it opened in 1928. The dam used to be equipped with superb pace and potency and accomplished on funds and prior to agenda, and its turbines got here online on the very crescendo of the Roaring Twenties, while the race towards electrification used to be altering American lifestyles. The hydro dams of the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Bonneville and Grand Coulee Dams within the Pacific Northwest, and the good colossus of Hoover Dam have been all developed within the subsequent 20 years, yet good-looking, indomitable Conowingo Dam preceded all of them and is still in powerful operation to this very day.
