Abstract: The Compendium of Pumped Storage Plants in the United States was prepared by the Pumped Storage Task Committee of the Hydropower Committee of the ASCE Energy Division. It is intended to be a reference document to describe the characteristics of existing pumped storage plants in the United States. Through the use of tables and lists, the Compendium summarizes the major civil engineering features of 36 pumped storage plants in order to make the process of analyzing or developing new sites more efficient; to make the preliminary design of new pumped storage projects with similar characteristics more efficient; and to provide a useful educational tool for those new to the field of pumped storage.
