(AP) – Bagnell Dam and Osage Energy Center at Missouri’s Lake of the
Ozarks will get a $52 million upgrade starting this spring.
Ameren Missouri said Tuesday that new anchors and concrete will be installed
on the downstream side of the dam that provides power to 42,000 homes.
Ameren officials say the last major structural update at Bagnell Dam was
completed more than 30 years ago.
The new project is expected to take about 18 months. Ameren says the new
anchors will help hold the dam to underlying bedrock, and more than 66 million
pounds of new concrete will be added.
No long-term road closures are anticipated and Ameren says the work will not
impact energy generation capacity.
