OSCODA – The public got a glimpse of the inter-workings of the Foote Dam Hydroelectric Plant, Saturday, during a centennial celebration held over the weekend.

Consumers Energy allowed 240 visitors to tour the dam at no cost on Saturday, Aug. 11, for 30 minute guided tours.

Built in 1918, Foote Dam was named after William A. Foote, the founding father of today’s Consumers Energy in 1886. The dam is responsible for supplying electricity to thousands of people all over the state of Michigan.
