Duke Energy has been buying a lot of land to build their new nuclear plant. They are also building a new lake to support the plant. I've heard several different reports on how big the lake will be, somewhere from 2500 arces to 9000 acres. I can't see it being 9000 acres because of the elevation, they would either have to lots of digging or have some mighty big dikes to keep it from flooding Cherokee Falls. I guess we'll see in the not so distance future.
