The reconstructed west wall of the Sanitary & Ship Canal upstream of the Lockport Powerhouse protrudes westward into the Des Plaines River to provide access to both the forebay and tailrace levels of the Lockport Powerhouse. Looking south, June 5, 2017: the old wall followed a straight line to the west end of the powerhouse. (Photo by author)
