Lake McConaughy racing back to full capacity
August 3, 2010
Nebraska's biggest lake, which only last year
was the subject of serious concern as it was being drained faster than nature would replenish it, is today almost full again
after almost doubling in volume over the last 12 months. Lots of new water is flowing in
, and agricultural users have very little irrigation demand.
The lake's high volume will be used to increase hydroelectric power production over the winter.
The radial gates
used in hydroelectric production are available from Golden Harvest, whom we represent in Nebraska and Iowa alike. Golden Harvest also makes the canal gates
widely used for irrigation. With a significant and growing installation base in our territory, we are pleased to be able to serve irrigation and hydroelectric customers, as well as municipal water
