Each week the number of “likes” for the Grand River Dam Authority’s Facebook page continues to rise a bit. That is encouraging for GRDA because we are always adding new content in an effort to enhance communications and expand online. This has proven to be a helpful tool for that and we encourage the public to connect to GRDA’s social media presence, which also includes Twitter and YouTube.

On the GRDA Facebook page, photos – including the new “Flashback Friday” feature – are always being added, as well as the weekly Power For Progress column, news releases and other information that could prove to be important for our customers, Grand Lake stakeholders and the public. True, like a lot of social media, it is a constant work in progress, but also a great resource that gives GRDA the potential to share event more information and receive important feedback.

On its YouTube channel – www.youtube.com/user/GrandRiverDamAuth – GRDA recently added a video that details the recent summer boating season on Grand and Hudson lakes. It has been called one of the best seasons in recent memory, but you don’t have to take GRDA’s word for it; check out the video. Then, remember to check back often as GRDA plans to add more of our videos in the future.

As a reminder, GRDA’s original cyberspace location – grda.com – is always open for business too. You can read the latest news releases there and get more information on all aspects of the broad GRDA mission. The Power of Power book, which tells both GRDA’s story and its positive economic impact in Oklahoma, is still featured online, along with the latest version of the GRDA lake rules. More information on lake permitting, GRDA job openings, vendor requirements, education programs (Electric Express) and overall GRDA operations are also available.

Need more information? That’s easy, just visit us online.
