This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Great Sacandaga Lake in Fulton, Saratoga and Hamilton Counties, New York with the following interesting stats carved into it:
- Area: 41.7 square miles
- Length: 29.2 miles
- Max depth: 70 feet
- Surface elevation: 771 feet
- Shore length: 66 miles
Interesting factoid: Damming the Sacandaga River had been proposed repeatedly over the late 19th century. Only after several large floods impacted downstream communities, such as the city of Albany, was there a serious and concerted effort by the state to explore flood control. A public benefit corporation was established to study the feasibility of the dam and later adopted a resolution proposing the dam in 1924. Construction began in the 1920s and completed in March 1930. The dam was constructed at Conklingville in the Town of Day, Saratoga County. Four covered bridges and a steel railroad bridge were removed or destroyed. A new 3,075 feet bridge consisting of 21 steel spans was constructed at Batchellerville. This 1930 bridge was replaced in 2012.
