Sometimes referred to as the Markham Ferry Project, this is the second hydroelectric facility constructed by GRDA. Located just north of Locust Grove, Oklahoma, the dam forms Lake Hudson, a 12,000-acre, 200-mile shoreline lake, the second in a chain of three lakes along the Grand River. Constructed in 1964, Kerr Dam’s powerhouse houses four, 28.5-megawatt generators that combine to produce 114 total megawatts of electricity. Kerr Dam has 17 floodgates and a total discharge potential of 599,000 cubic feet per second.
