July-Harry S. Truman Dam and Reservoir
In honor of Truman Dam, which we use on our logo, we decided to make our premier special event one which commemorates the completion of this monumental landmark!
Truman Dam itself is located in Warsaw, Missouri, USA, which is the seat of Benton County. It is maintained by the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the completion of Truman Dam. Truman Dam is a concrete gravity and earth embankment dam. Normal pool for the lake is 706′ above sea level, though 2019 brought record high levels. The dam also generates power using “six turbine generators and has a rated capacity of 160,000 kilowatts” ~USACE
Further information on Truman Dam is available here.
We were granted the use of the 1×1 call W0T for our special event!
