SCE&G to Test Lake Murray Dam Inundation Sirens


CAYCE, S.C. (Jan. 9, 2017) – SCE&G will conduct an annual test of its Lake Murray Dam inundation sirens on Tuesday, Jan. 10 at noon. The sirens will sound for approximately three minutes.

In the unlikely event of a failure of the Lake Murray Dam, the South Carolina Emergency Management Division would notify area residents to evacuate through news media channels and with the help of local officials and law enforcement. In such an event, the Lake Murray Dam inundation sirens would also serve as an indication of an evacuation notice.

The Lake Murray Dam inundation siren system includes 10 rotating sirens located in parts of both Richland and Lexington Counties. For a map of the Lake Murray Dam inundation zone, visit https://www.sceg.com/docs/librariesprovider5/default-document-library/lake-murray-evacuation-map.pdf

SCE&G also conducts a monthly, one-minute test of the Lake Murray Dam inundation sirens. These tests are a part of SCE&G’s operation of the Lake Murray Dam under licensure of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

“We maintain and monitor the Lake Murray Dam on a continual basis,” said Jim Landreth, vice president of Fossil Hydro operations for SCE&G. “We are confident in the safety and integrity of our infrastructure on and around Lake Murray, and we want to take every precaution to ensure the safety of the public.”
