Conowingo generates about 550 megawatts of power, similar to a full sized coal generating station, but cheaply and with no air or water pollution, so we should promptly authorize its use and keep it running.
On Thursday December 18th and Friday December 19th, Conowingo will be preforming tree trimming in Fisherman’s Park. Please pardon our noise and distraction with this project. The end result is to improve bald eagle viewing in the future.
