Rocky Gorge Dam, a 'thing of beauty and pleasure'
From an enormous command center in West Laurel, Karen Wright and her staff with the Systems Control Group of the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission constantly check the 10 color-coded computer monitors that ring the curved room. Many of the large screens have multiple displays, allowing them to monitor the entire WSSC system of waterways, sewers, dams, reservoirs and pipes. Weather is also monitored, with feeds from the federal government and the Weather Channel.
