COLUMBIA, S.C. (Nov. 7, 2006)
– South Carolina Electric & Gas Co. (SCE&G) has rescheduled its annual test of the Saluda Hydro Plant’s spillway gates for Thursday, Nov. 9, at 10:00 due to potential inclement weather. The test will include operating gate number five to the full open position and opening all other gates approximately one foot each. Various measurements will be recorded for each gate operation. Traffic will be slightly interrupted during the testing.

SCE&G conducts this test each year to ensure that the spillway gates are in proper working condition. Road construction by the South Carolina Department of Transportation continues on Highway 6 around the spillway, so SCE&G urges the public to exercise caution while driving through the area during this brief time.
