(UP)— Construction work on the $45,000,GOO Santee-Cooper hydro-electric power project in lower South Carolina hoi; reached the halfway mark and engineers hope to have the plant in operation this time next year. At present work on the project is "Chiii forward at full speed, with a peak load of nearly 10,000 workmen employed. The construction WHS started approximately one year ago and the date for its completion has been set for Dec. 31, 1941. Being built by the South Carolina Public Service Authority with federal aid, this huge project, when completed, will be capable of generating 700,000,000 kilowatt, hours of low-cost power annually, create a deep water navigation channel from Charleston on the coast nearly to Columbia, 100 miles inland, and provide a vast new recreation area throughout the lower part of the .state. The largest project of its kind now being built in the nation, San- tee-Ccoper will consist of two dams, a powerhouse, a lift lock 75 feet high and more than 56 miles of earthen dikes. Dam World's Largest ' One of the two dams—the Santee—will be the world's longest dam. More than half completed now. it consists of a 3,500-foot concrete spillway with earth sections of 2.75 and 4.41 miles on either . side. When finished this structure will create a reservoir L55 square miles in area. From this basin the water will flow into a second lake, this one 95 square miles in extent, and thence through the giant turbines of the powerhouse. This second basin, known tentatively as the Pinopolis reservoir, is being created ' by the construction of approximately 26 miles of earth dikes and dams. The spillway, now about (50 per cent complete., will be 48 feet high. Us G2 flood-gates, each 50 feet wide, will be'capable of releasing 800,000 cubic feet of water a second, almost three times the greatest flood-peak ever reached by the Santce river, Water Storage Starts Soon 1 Storage of water behind the lower dam is scheduled to begin in February, and the upper dam is expected to be clo&ed oft some time next summer. The Santee-Cooper project is being- built at an estimated cost of ^5,795,000. Of this amount, S39.- 900,000 represents loans and grants ircm the PVVA and WPA. Almost 195,000 acres of land will be embraced in the development when it is completed, of which approximately 90 per cent has been acquired. Engineers have estimated that some 300.000 cubic yards of concrete will be used in constructing he concrete spillway dam. almost three-quarters of a mile in length. This enormous amount of concrete, they say. would build a super-sidewalk 4 inches thick and -l feet wide from Charleston. S. C. to Los Angeles, n distance of more than ' 3.000 miles. In command of German surface raiders now operating in the Atlantic is Admiral H. Lueljen.s, according to announcement by German high command.
