ERSONVILLE, tf. C.
XHUESDAT, MAY 1st, 1919 V FRENCH BROAD HUSTLER, HEND Vr To Cut Channel Through Ridge (Continued from page one.) company of Spartanburg, which has been in progress for sometime, will prove to be one of the biggest propo sitions of its kind that has been un dertaken in the great mountain sec tion. The great development is well back in the mountains, one mile from .Tuxedo, in Henderson county, eight miles from Hendersonville, in the v gorge of Green river. The approach to the development where about 200 men are employed convinces one that big things are going on. There are two small vil lages of temporary, quarters for the men, some of whom have their fami lies with them. Here and there are rock crushers, concrete mixers, dink- ies and great masses of concrete structure, much eradin?. etc. The undertaking is such a great one and the development calls for such a vast amount of work over a territory of a mile on the river that progress neces sarily appears slow, but great things are done each day and the company hopes to deliver power before tin end of the year. Line Surveyed A transmission line has been sur veved into Hendersonville by Engi neer Wohlford and the transmission line to Spartanburg, the principal consuming point, is practically 90 per cent completed. It is understood that the small towns enroute will enjoy the power and lighting facilities of the Blue Ridge Power company and to what extent Hendersonville will share it, is unknown, but a census has been taken of power used there and the transmission line doubtless means that power is to be had pro vided the people want it. The line at least wil place electrical power on a compeH'v1 vpsics. rv jompleted will be 1: r'.-t thick at the bor ic - " one half feet thick -.

Its present level fwill be four feet below the water lev el of the lake when the dam is com pleted. . This necessitates a mile of grading in order to raise the road 18 feet and reach a proper grade. The Willard Boggs company of Spartan burg is doing this work under eon tract. The trestle calls for 11 piers with 40 foot spans, the highest pier being S5 feet. The Flume Sixty feet above the bed of the rlv- through an 8-foot cypress flume one mile long, 1,300 feet of which have been erected with steel bands five inches apart and with the flume rest ing on concrete cradles eight feet apart. The flume has a very slight decline and leads to the surge tank a mile away and well above the river. This tank is to be 25 feet in diameter and 80 feet high with a level above bthat of the dam a mile up stream. This will give the water a drop .of about 250 feet almost straight down hill through two five-foot pipes to the power house producing two 4,000 horse power units. The powe is to be generated at 6,600 volts and trans mitted at 44,000 voltage. The flume necessitated some heavy grading and at one point 1,250 feet of. masonry was necessary in order to form a retaining wall. The grading provides for another flume which the company anticipates building when the rfiquirments necessitate it. The company has suitable sites for other dams above the present one which could be erected to form storage tanks. It is understood that the company anticipates a still bigger de velopment about four miles down stream that would back the water up to the present power house site. The company does not propose to stop with the power development. Its plans call for a residential section around the, 350-acres of impounded water. This probably will soon be plotted, landscaped and laid out with drives. A survey calls for a splendid road passing through the residential property around the lake and connect ing the Spartanburg and Greenville highways. This will give a beautiful 350 - acre lake 2,000 feet above sea Greenville or Spartanbtirg highway; The Officers The officers cf the Blue Ridge Pow er company are W. A. 'Montgomery, HE Victory Loan Button Victory Liberty Loan Committer This space contributed by president, Spartanburg; John . a. Law, treasurer, of Spartanburg. Mesa & Mess of Charlotte are the consult ing engineers and Mr. "Wohlford of Charlotte is the resident engineer, who has been on th'e ground since July 1917. "Jack" Ward is construc tion superintendent; O. A. Meyee, resident manager and F. P. Harrison resident electrical engineer. Below the power house site and in view o2 the Spartanburg road commodious and up-to-date arrangements have been made for caring for those in ac tive charge of the work. Beautiful cottages have been erected and sup I iiei with ruining vt:ter and other mo lern" facilities. These houses are occupied !y -Vt &?!; Harrison, Meyer and Wohlford and their families and are a mile or more from the tempo rary camp structures erected to care for the other men.
