Douglas Lake

Facts & Figures

Work on Douglas Dam began in February 1942 and was completed on a crash schedule in just 12 months and 17 days. The construction of Douglas set a world record for projects of equivalent size.

The dam is 202 feet high and stretches 1,705 feet across the French Broad River.

Douglas Reservoir provides 513 miles of shoreline and about 28,420 acres of water surface for recreation activities.

In a year with normal rainfall, the water level in Douglas Reservoir varies about 44 feet from summer to winter to provide seasonal flood storage.

The reservoir has a flood-storage capacity of 1,082,000 acre-feet.

The hydroelectric power plant at Douglas Dam consists of four generating units.
