Update on Sanford Dam

The following was published in our Spring 2015 Newsletter

As Sanford Lake homeowners we all have a vested interest in the health of the Sanford Dam. You may have seen a lot of activity at the Dam over the past year and asked yourself—what are they up to over there? The SLA Board asked Boyce Hydro for an update. The construction you’ve seen taking place is for scheduled maintenance and equipment upgrades.

These include: replacing one of the three original turbines and rewinding its original generator, as well as replacing the entire electrical switchgear apparatus with state-of-the-art electrical components. In fact, the work they are doing will make the dam more efficient and safer. Boyce Hydro is using a combination of local companies to complete the work with anticipated completion by October 15th.

The entire letter from Boyce Hydro outlining the projects can be found here.
