Ocoee Dam No. 2
Top of Ocoee Dam No. 2
Constructed 1912-1913, Ocoee Dam No. 2 is a 30' high, 450' long, rock-filled timber crib structure. Repairs of Ocoee Dam No. 2 were completed in 1980. These repairs gave this dam it's unique look. With the downstream face of the rockfilled timber dam severely damaged, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) chose a process called Roller-compacted concrete (RCC). In the RCC process of construction the concrete is spread in one-foot-thick layers, with each additional layer being slightly less wide than the layer beneath it. This layering of the concrete is what gives Ocoee Dam No. 2 it's "staircase" look on the downriver side. This photo was taken at the top of the dam.
