The $2.5 million, six-month project is the first expansion of the plant in Conowingo's 65-year history.

The new addition will be a stucco, steel-framed three-story construction at the west end of the powerhouse. The project also includes renovations to the existing work space, including water system modifications.

The addition will provide 9,000 square feet of office and work space for management, business, and technical staff for Conowingo and PECO's Muddy Run Pumped Storage Facility, located in Lancaster County, Pa.

Paul Risk Associates Inc., of Quarryville, Pa., is the general contractor. Francis Cauffman Foley Hoffman, of Philadelphia, is the design architect.
