#9. Medieval toilets ?#10. Quick fix ?#11. The upper reservoir of the Taum Sauk plant.
The Taum Sauk pumped storage plant is a power station in the St. Francois mountain region of Missouri, United States about 90 miles (140 km) south of St. Louis near Lesterville, Missouri, in Reynolds County. It is operated by Ameren Missouri.
The rebuilt upper reservoir of the Taum Sauk plant is the largest roller-compacted concrete dam in North America.
The upper reservoir can hold about 1.5 billion U.S. gallons (4,600 acre feet; 5.7 million cubic meters) of water behind a wall nearly 100 feet (30 m) tall. It sits 760 feet (230 m) above the 450 MW hydroelectric plant, which gives it a greater head than that of Hoover Dam. The two are connected by a 7,000-foot (2,100 m) tunnel bored through the mountain.
The Taum Sauk upper reservoir sits atop Proffit Mountain, not Taum Sauk Mountain, which is about 5 miles (8.0 km) to the east. It is visible from Route 21 north of Centerville and from Route N approaching Johnson’s Shut-ins State Park from the south.
