National Dam Safety Awareness

Today we join the Association of State Dam Safety Officials (ASDSO) in celebrating and recognizing National Dam Safety Awareness Day. As a responsible dam owner, The York Water Company is acutely aware of our responsibility to protect our community while at the same time providing water storage and recreation opportunities at our reservoirs. Our newly rehabilitated Lake Williams Dam is designed and constructed to withstand more than 107,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) of flow, an increase in capacity of 69,000 cfs from its original 1912 design. Based upon improved modelling and innovative design and construction techniques, the modified spillway is designed to offer a higher level of protection for everything downstream today and for generations to come.
