The new Glenville dam of . the
Aluminum Company of America
vill be formally dedicated on Mon
day, October . 13, with Governor
Broughton . making the chief address.--
?':'.'':.. "': .
The exercises will be held at the
rite of the Jackson county dam at
1:15 o'clock, and the general pub
lic is invited.
The ceremony will signalize the
capture, in the Jackson county
area of 30,000 h. p. to be transmit
ed as electric energy to the huge
aluminum works at Alcoa, Tenn.,
ind there used to add 11,000,000
nounds to the nation's annual pro
duction of aluminum.
Attending the exercises will be a
large group of distinguished en
gineers, business men and public
officials. D. Hiden Ramsey, gen
eral manager of the Asheville
Citizen Times Company, will in
troduce the governor. '
Following the program at Glen
ville, a trip will be made to Nan
thala to .view the power develop
ment there, which, is expected to be
completed early next summer.
The two dams, newest units in
the Aluminum company's hydro
electric development of theLittle
Tennessee river system, have a
number of interesting features.
The Glenville project's gross head
of 1,215 feet is the highest east of
lhe Rbckies, while the Nantahala
dam, rising 250 feet above its
stream bed, will be the highest
rock and earth fill dam east of the
Mississippi. Its maximum head of
1,005.0 feet ' will be the second
highest in the Eastern United
Water from the Glenville reser
voir will have a pressure of more
than 600 pounds per square inch.
The turbines are at the power
house, three miles downstream.
Connected with an Allis-Chalmers
50 cycle, three phase generator, it
will create electric energy to be
transmitted over 37 miles of high
tension lines to Nantahala, and
thence to Santeelah and to Alcoa,
site of America's largest aluminum
producing works. '-i , '
To reach the power house water
from the dam will pass through
three and a half miles of steel pipe
and tunnels drilled through moun
tains of rock. :
The dam will create a 1,400 acre
lake to be filled from the water of
a 40 square mile drainage area.
The dam consists of two parts,
the main dam across the channel
of the west fork of Tuckaseegee
river, and a saddle dam across a
saddle in the hills just to the left
of the main dam. ;,:
The main dam is 150 feet high,
about 900 feet long, and more than
800 feet thick at the base. In the
two Glenville dams is a combined
total of 1,300000 cubic yards of
rock and earth.
Construction of the Glenville and
Nantalala dams, both begun in
July, 1940, wrote finis to the his
tory of two communities: The old
village of Affuone, in Macon coun
ty had to be razed when work was
begun at the Nantahala develop
ment. The site of the commun
ity will be 100 feet under waters
of the lake to be created by the
Nantahala dam. The village of
Glenville in the Glenville reservoir
likewise was razed.
At Glenville, 1,155,800 pounds
of dynamite was used in tunnel
boring and mountain smashing,'
while a new blasting record was
set at Nantahala when experts of
the Atlas Power company fired JO
tons of explosives at the dam site.
The Nantahala dam, which will
create 60,000 h. p., will be 350 feet
high, 1,080 feet long, and will be
1,000 feet thick through the base.'
When it is completed, more than
2,000,000 yards of material will
have gone into its construction.
