* Projects operated for these additional primary purposes at the beginning of and throughout fiscal year

Of the multiple-purpose projects under active construction at the end of the fiscal year, 10 projects had no primary-project features in operation. They are shown in table 10.

Maintenance. Operation and maintenance activities were conducted on 26 multiple-purpose projects during the fiscal year at a cost of $8,318,800.

4. HYDROELECTRIC POWER PRODUCTION Great strides were made during the fiscal year in accomplishing the program of constructing and operating hydroelectric power-production facilities authorized and operated in connection with navigation and flood control projects. The program goal for completion of construction and placing additional generating capacity in operation was fully realized.

At projects constructed by the Corps of Engineers, 9-billion kilowatt-hours were generated during the fiscal year, approximately 2 percent of the total production of the Nation's utility systems. The Corps of Engineers, with one minor exception, is not involved in the distribution and sale of the power produced at the projects, since under the various laws the power produced and available for sale is delivered to the control of the Secretary of the Interior for disposition at rates approved by the Federal Power Commission.

Present installed capacity. The power features of the projects placed in operation have produced substantial revenues which are deposited in the Treasury of the United States. Additional generating capacity of 803,250 kw representing 8 percent of the capacity added to the Nation's utility systems during the fiscal year was installed by the Corps of Engineers in 5 existing projects and 6 new projects as shown in the following table.

This large block (table 11) of additional generating capacity contributed greatly to alleviating power shortages, particularly in the critically deficient northwest region which has recently been subject to power curtailment and where 398,000 kilowatts of additional capacity from the McNary and Detroit projects were made available to the Northwest Power Pool during the fiscal year. The additional generating capacity constructed and placed in operation increased the total generating capacity in service at the end of the fiscal year from projects built by the Corps of Engineers to 2,516,800 kilowatts located in 20 projects as shown in table 12. As of the end of the fiscal year, the generating capacity operated by the Corps of Engineers represented 2.7 percent of the total generating capacity and 11 percent of the hydroelectric generating capacity supplying utility systems in the United States.

Additional capacity under construction. At the end of the fiscal year, the Corps of Engineers had under construction additional generating capacity of 980,000 kilowatts at 3 operating projects as shown in table 12, and 3,224,000 kilowatts at 13 new projects, or a total of 4,204,000 kilowatts currently under construction as shown by the table which follows.
