Construction of the west concrete wall just upstream of the Lockport Powerhouse cannot be integrated with the powerhouse until the powerhouse is built. As of November 9, 1905, excavation of the powerhouse foundation and construction of turbine discharge draft tubes is underway. Draft tubes convey water downstream after the water passes through the turbines. The draft tubes will be lined with concrete behind the wooden forms at left. (MWRD photo 3264)
