A group from the church visited the Bad Creek pumped storage hydroelectric station in Oconee County operated by Duke Energy. The trip included touring above and below ground, walking a short trail, and looking at bear research. Here are a few pictures, courtesy of Trina Baldwin. The photos are of the clear blue water of the reservoir, looking down the face of the main dam, inside the tunnel (looking at the pony motor that starts one of the four motors to pump water from Jocassee up to Bad Creek), and the nifty sign for Bad Creek.
