Lake Keowee is a reservoir created by Keowee Dam and Little River Dam. It impounds the Keowee River and the Little River, each of which exits through its respective dam. The two rivers join just below the dams and their confluence forms the Seneca River, a tributary of the Savannah River. Lake Keowee is used as cooling water for three nuclear reactors located at the Oconee Nuclear Generating Station which are owned by Duke Energy Corporation. Duke Energy's Keowee Hydro Station generates 158 MW from the dammed lake. The lake covers about 18,372 acres (74.35 km2). Lake Keowee is one of the purest clear lakes in North America dotted with islands and home to a variety of bass and other fish. Lake Keowee is a water sportsman's paradise in South Carolina, a place for boating, fishing, kayaking, sailing and swimming.
