Now 110-years old, the S&S Canal extension and Lockport Powerhouse continue to perform the vital function of draining the District and generating sustainable power. Looking north on June 19, 2008, the Lockport Powerhouse in the foreground is flanked on the left by the Des Plaines River, and on the right by the 20-foot sluice gate, original small lock, and the larger lock placed in service in 1933. Obscured by trees at far right is Deep Run and the Santa Fe railroad. (MWRD_061908_1178_new)
