Leight Speaker Series - Conowingo Dam
Conowingo Dam, Power on the Susquehanna Don Baldwin, a retired Civil Engineer, will be presenting the video "Conowingo Dam, Power on the Susquehanna." The one-hour video, produced by Maryland Public Television in 2016, discusses the construction and history of the Conowingo Dam. Don was the Senior Civil Engineer at Conowingo Dam for 25 years before retiring in 2016, and was responsible for the dam structure and emergency planning.  Following the video, there will be a Q and A session when participants can mine the depths of Baldwin’s memory and experiences of the Conowingo Dam.  Copies of the DVD will be available for purchase.
