NBLT Private Tour of Francis E. Walter Dam - Sunday, June 10, 2018

Posted on: June 10, 2018

An employee of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will lead this tour of the Francis E. Walter Dam in White Haven on Sunday, June 10. They will begin with construction photos to give you a description of how the project was constructed. The group will then move to the top of the dam where the monitoring/telemetry instrumentation will be demonstrated and explained. We’ll then move to the tower itself to see the inner workings.

The elevator into the tower fits 5 snugly including the operator. Depending upon your fitness or claustrophobic tendencies, there are also stairs (about the same height as Cape Hatteras Lighthouse). This tour is not for people afraid of heights!
