The Keowee-Toxaway Power Project located in North and South Carolina received the 1975 OCEA Award. The many facets of this project appear overwhelming, yet this contributes to the remarkable concept that one grasps as the smooth coordination of power sources becomes evident. The project utilizes nuclear, hydro, and pumped-storage facilities designed to meet an interrelated capacity factor demand. All of the power facilities use the same reservoir waters in a truly multi-purpose system. Besides the multiple engineering functions of the reservoirs, they serve a multiple-use scheme honored by other awards that involve conservation, recreation, and land development.
