technical tours

LAND BETWEEN THE LAKES: BARKLEY AND KENTUCKY DAM TOUR
Mon. July 21 | 8:00am - 5:00pm
Includes transportation and lunch.
Limited to 45 registrations | Must register by June 20th
US $125

The 130-MW Barkley plant, on the Cumberland River in Kentucky, began operating in 1966 with four units. The powerhouse has an availability rate of 96.9%, which is far above industry average. The dam consists of two embankment sections, a spillway section and a navigation lock. This project is among nine Corps hydropower plants on the Cumberland River that a 2008 study found need as much as $470 million in repairs.
The 184-MW Kentucky Dam facility, on the Tennessee River in Kentucky, began operating in 1944. It is the longest dam in the Tennessee Valley Authority system at 8,422 feet and impounds the largest artificial lake in the eastern U.S. at 184 miles in length. The dam has a flood storage capacity of more than 4 million acre-feet, which is more than 2.5 times the capacity of the next largest reservoir in the TVA system. In 2012, a new fishing pier and parking area were added downstream from the dam, and in 2011 TVA inaugurated a new bicycle and pedestrian path across the top of the dam.

Participants in this tour also will see the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, which is located between Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake.


HYDRO BASICS: OLD HICKORY TOUR
Mon. July 21 | 12:30pm - 2:30pm
Includes transportation and lunch.
Limited to 45 registrations | Must register by June 20th

The 100-MW Old Hickory facility on the Cumberland River in Tennessee began operating in 1957. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has been dealing with alignment problems on one unit due to concrete in the powerhouse not heating uniformly in the sun. This project is among nine Corps hydropower plants on the Cumberland River that a 2008 study found need as much as $470 million in repairs. Old Hickory Lake is ranked in the top five of the 25 most visited Corps lakes nationwide.

 


CENTER HILL DAM: SOLVING SEEPAGE PROBLEMS
Tues. July 22 | 8:00am - 2:00pm

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is planning to refurbish all three turbine-generator units at this facility. The dam is currently undergoing work to deal with seepage. This project is among nine Corps hydropower plants on the Cumberland River that a 2008 study found need as much as $470 million in repairs.
