In preparation for upcoming maintenance at the Bridgewater Hydro Station, Duke Energy will open a valve located in the center of the Catawba Dam late Friday afternoon, August 15. The valve releases a jet of water that is visible from NC Highway 126, and is part of normal operations. Based on the current maintenance schedule the valve will close mid-week, after the work is complete.
