Buggs Island and Reservoir Project Construction by Corps of Engineers, U.S. Army

Metadata Updated: October 10, 2019

The Buggs Island Dam and reservoir is being constructed for flood control, generation of hydroelectric power, and other allied uses. The reservoir is one unit of a comprehensive reservoir system planned for the Roanoke River Basin to control the widely fluctuating flows of the Roanoke River and its tributaries (see map on inside back cover for the location of these proposed reservoirs). The space in the upper portion of the reservoir will be reserved exclusively to control floods on the Roanoke River below the dam. The lower part of the reservoir space will be used for the storage of water to regulate the low flows of the Roanoke River, to produce hydroelectric power at the site, to dilute industrial and other wastes now, emptied into the Roanoke River, and for future navigation. Incidental benefits will result from recreation on the lake, and from fish and wildlife preservation in and around the lake and in the river downstream
