Conowingo Dam, Maryland
The Conowingo Dam (also Conowingo Hydroelectric Plant, Conowingo Hydroelectric Station) is a large hydroelectric dam in the Lower Susquehanna River near the town of Conowingo, Maryland. The medium-height, masonry gravity dam is one of the largest non-federal hydroelectric dams in the U.S.
Spanning the border between Cecil and Harford counties, it sits about 9.9 miles (16 km) from the river mouth at the Chesapeake Bay, 5 miles (8 km) south of the Pennsylvania border and 45 miles (72 km) northeast of Baltimore.
The original town of Conowingo sits under the reservoir created by the dam. During dam construction, the town was moved to its present location about 1-mile (1.6 km) northeast of the dam's eastern end. The rising water also would have covered Conowingo Bridge, the original U.S. Route 1 crossing, so it was demolished in 1928. Today, the dam carries Route 1 across the Susquehanna.
The Conowingo Reservoir, and the nearby Susquehanna State Park, provide many recreational opportunities.
