Exelon Statement on Maryland Department of Environment Water Quality Certification for Conowingo Dam

 

Exelon Generation shares the commitment to restoring and sustaining the health of the Chesapeake Bay. For nearly 90 years, the Conowingo Dam has been a source of reliable energy for the State of Maryland and today accounts for 55 percent of the renewable energy in Maryland.  

In order to assess the impacts to the Chesapeake Bay, it is important to understand the science, which clearly shows the flow of pollutants down the Susquehanna River, from New York and Pennsylvania, and into the Bay. At the same time, it is important to understand that the Conowingo Dam does not produce any pollution itself.

Exelon will continue to work with the state, local communities and environmental organizations to find a comprehensive and long-term solution, and our water quality certification application was an important step toward that effort.

We are reviewing the State of Maryland’s water quality certification now and will evaluate next steps to determine the long-term viability of the Conowingo Dam.
