Lake Norman is a manmade body of fresh water created by the construction of Cowans Ford Dam as part of an effort to provide hydroelectric power to the surrounding area. Construction of the Dam was completed in 1963.
Lake Norman provides 520 miles of winding shoreline, about 32,475 acres of water surface. The water of Lake Norman is used in two ways to provide electricity to the Piedmont Carolinas. It is used to power the generators at Cowans Ford Hydroelectric Station and by Marshall Steam Station and McGuire Nuclear Station to cool the steam that drives the turbines. This steam is condensed back to water so it can be pumped back through the plants and used again.
