Show-Me Power Tunnel Dam Update

The Niangua Hydroelectric Generating Station, nestled along the winding Niangua River in Missouri, faced a significant challenge. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) expressed its desire for Show Me Power, the owner of the dam, to bulldoze the structure. FERC believed that removing the dam would be beneficial for various reasons. However, Show Me Power firmly believed in preserving the dam and the many benefits it provided.
