The trash racks have been installed on each of the nine turbine bays by August 30, 1907. Two weeks later water will fill the Lockport Powerhouse forebay, and two months later the turbine/generator units will begin generating electricity. The floating debris skimmed off the water will be burned. The Sanitary & Ship Canal extension is nearing completion. (MWRD photo 3803)
