Hundreds of people gathered along the Harford County shore of the Susquehanna River Saturday to marvel as bald eagles who call the area around the Conowingo Dam home soared over the river below the dam...
Conowingo Dam, located on Route 1 over the Susquehanna River is nearly 10 miles north of the Chesapeake Bay and a perfect location to spend a day with the family.
Exelon Generation, owner and operator of the 85-year-old dam, led more than 1,000 people on guided tours.
If you want to see bald eagles, this is the place to do it. Bring your camera and binoculars.
The dam is a vital, cherished resource and its continued operation is critical to providing clean energy and environmental stewardship for the region.
The $12 million Conowingo lift was the largest of its kind in the nation when it opened in 1991. Before the existence of the fish lift, shad were actually trucked around the four dams on the Susquehanna River.
Jason Michalski and friends were doing their best to remove some flathead catfish at the Conowingo Dam pool and one would think they had a great time and some sore arms.
For more than 20 years, the fish lift atop the Conowingo Dam has been helping creatures up and over the structure. The dam's general manager told WJZ the lift moved 1.1 million fish in 2012 several stories above the Susquehanna River.
From November to February the Conowingo Dam attracts over a hundred species of birds, but the bald eagles are the star of the show. What draws them to the giant hydroelectric dam, which located on the Susquehanna River, is the way it makes energy.
