BUZZARDS ROOST DAM - it appears the Duke Power Company protests will be discarded by the courts. The Greenwood County power project was to build a 17,500 KW steam electric power plant, substations and distribution and street lighting systems. Greenwood also proposed to build a waterpower plant, using natural resources now going to waste. It seems almost certain that the allocation of $2,767,000 in PWA funds for the development will go forward. Daniel T. Duncan is the engineer of the Buzzard Roost Power project. He will prepare a revised application for the proposed project. Observer 7/10/1934, p1; PWA requested that the names of all people protesting the construction of the Buzzard Roost Dam be published. It was stated that since the project is a government proposition the names of all people taking part for or against it are public property. Observer 7/13/1934, p1; the PWA approved of the application for BUZZARD ROOST DAM. The only thing stopping construction now is the granting of a license by the Federal Power Commission. Observer 7/20/1934, p1; Greenwood officials assailed Duke Power Company in their fight to crush the development. Observer 7/20/1934, p7; work was started with preliminary activities. The dam will be built 600 yards above the new highway bridge on the 96 – Chappells highway, but will not be visible from the bridge on account of the curve in the River near the dam. Observer 7/27/1934, p1; the federal judge ruled the public works administration (PWA) had no authority to grant funds for construction of municipal power plants. This may delay getting the power project underway. It might be necessary for SC Supreme Court to rule to the effect that municipalities have a right to engage in business. Details, Observer 9/25/1934, p1; legal obstacles were removed when the State Supreme Court refused the petition for an injunction against the County to restrain it from erecting the power plant and from issuing bonds for the development. The Duke Power and the Southern Utility Company asked to be allowed an interpleader, it was pointed out in the opinion but the court denied them the right to do so but granted them permission to participate in the argument. Observer 11/6/1934, p1; Duke Power Company charged the construction and operation of the BUZZARD ROOST PROJECT would exceed the funds provided by the federal loan by not less than 1.25 million dollars. The power company also charged the project would constitute illegal competition with Duke Power Co. business and franchise and will cost approximately $100,000 annually to run. This information was included in a brief on the restraining order filed by Duke Power Company. Details, Observer 12/28/1934, p1
