    Abstract:
    In the early 1940s, four dams were planned for the state with a fifth waiting approval. The dams were expected to increase power in times of war and peace. Nantahala Power and Light Company were responsible for constructing the Glenville dam on Tuckasegee River in Jackson County and Nantahala dam in Macon County. The Tennessee Valley Authority constructed two dams on the Hiawassee River. The first was the Appalachia dam built below the existing Hiwassee dam and the second, Chatuge dam, four miles east of Hayesville in Clay County. Combined cost for the four structures cost about $100,000,000.
