Description

 

The Norway-Oakdale Project consists of two developments:

The upper development, Norway, includes a 915-foot-long dam and an integral powerhouse, equipped with four vertical Francis turbine-generating units with a total authorized installed capacity of 7.2 MW.  The Norway Dam has a maximum height of 34 feet and contains a 120-foot-long gated spillway section.  The reservoir, Lake Shafer, extends 10 miles upstream of Norway Dam (River Mile 30.2 to River Mile 40.2), and has a surface area of about 1,291 acres at a pool elevation of 647.47 feet National Geodetic Vertical Datum (NGVD).  A 2-mile-long, 69,000-volt transmission line connects the Norway development substation to the Monticello substation located in Monticello, Indiana.    

The lower development, Oakdale, includes:  a 1,688-foot-long dam and an integral powerhouse, equipped with three vertical Francis turbine-generating units with a total authorized installed capacity of 9.2 MW.  The Oakdale Dam has a maximum height of 58 feet and contains an 84-foot-long gated spillway section.  The reservoir, Lake Freeman, extends 10 miles upstream of Oakdale Dam (River Mile 17.8 to River Mile 27.8) and has a surface area of about 1,547 acres at a pool elevation of 612.45 feet NGVD.  A 69,000-volt substation connects the facility to the electrical grid.
