Ziegler's Article on Dillsboro Dam Featured in Hydro Review Magazine
Although it may seem counterintuitive, sometimes removing a dam makes sense, as in this article about the Dillsboro Dam removal that is featured in the July issue of Hydro Review magazine.
The article, "Removing Dillsboro Dam: A Wise Decision," is co-authored by Ty Ziegler, environmental engineering manager in our Charlotte, N.C., office.
The article discusses how removal of the dam helped Duke Energy avoid significant costs at its other hydro projects and eliminated lost generation resulting from the installation of bypass flow facilities. The dam site now offers natural conditions and enhanced recreational opportunities.
