Did not know about them doing away with the hot water canal. Not too surprising as they are changing a lot since Duke Energy took over the plant. They had a lot of issues with the coal ash and...

Forgot to mention that Hyco has some relatively high launch fees and strict regulations that are heavily enforced. Some hate it, homeowners love it. Really keeps out the troublemakers.
