"Because of an Army Corps of Engineer proposed new dam on the Grand River 1 the original town of Pattonsburg, Missouri was to be inundated by the resulting lake reservoir formed above the dam. The city planners proposed the relocation of the town site adjacent to the new lake, forming a lake side community attractive to both a residential population and for industrial locations.
The electrical power loads of New Pattonsburg's residential, industrial, commercial, and municipal areas, as well as its street lighting power requirements, were planned for a population of 50,000. Statistical analysis of demographic surveys was employed to help predict the location and size of electrical loads per human needs and human density.
Estimate of the hydroelectric power output from the new dam built on the Grand River was made on a basis of 12 recorded, consecutive annual average discharge rates of the river.
The present transmission lines which surround the site of New Pattonsburg are assumed to have sufficient capacity to supply the new town's electrical power requirements.
The main electrical transmission line and power layout distribution of New Pattonsburg is planned to be accomplished by an underground distribution network. The cost of this distribution layout and the main transmission line is roughly estimated to be 8-12 million dollars"--Abstract, page ii.
