The Southwestern Regional Hydropower Council and Meeting are held annually among Southwestern,
the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), and the Southwestern Power Resources Association to assess
non-routine work to be performed at the Corps hydropower projects from which Southwestern markets power.
Funding for this work averages a little over $20 million per year under an innovative agreement among Southwestern, the Corps,
and City Water & Light Plant of the City of Jonesboro, Arkansas, to keep these hydropower projects operating
and to keep the power flowing to our wholesale customers and, ultimately, to the Nation.
