Salina Pumped-Storage Project

Salina Pumped Storage AerialThe third hydroelectric project constructed by GRDA, Salina Pumped Storage Project (SPSP) is not located directly on the Grand River system. With all possible dam sites along the river already utilized in the late 1960s, GRDA built Oklahoma’s first pumped-storage facility in the hills southeast of Salina, Oklahoma, along the Saline Creek arm of Lake Hudson. Though opponents argued that such an experimental facility would ‘break’ GRDA, construction of the first stage was completed in 1968. The second stage completed in 1971.
