The maximum hydraulic capacity is 36,200 cfs. The Jocassee Development is operated as a pumped-storage project, with the pump-turbines used for generating power during peak demand periods (typically during the day), and for pumping water back through the tunnels to Lake Jocassee (typically during the night).
