Description
The Great Sacandaga Lake was formerly known as the Sacandaga Reservoir. Before the Sacandaga Valley was flooded in 1930, the Sacandaga River and Hudson River caused periodic flooding in nearby areas each spring, which devasted many businesses in local communities. The Conklingville Dam was begun in the 1920's to put an end to the flooding. The work cost about $12 million and was paid for by the businesses who would stand to benefit from the project. Upon completion, over 280 billion gallons of water flooded the valley to create what is now the Great Sacandaga Lake.
