2023 Total Flow Infographic

 I have a lot of catching up to do, but off-hand I'd say 2023 may have broke some records, at least as far as total flow through the dam is concerned, going as far back as 2009. I usually measure the total amount of water passing through Bagnell Dam per year in the BILLIONS of gallons. This year, not even 1 billion gallons. The dam was operational for power generation only a bit over 10% of the time. In terms of marketable power sold on the grid, versus operation costs, I think last year was an unprofitable one.
