The photo left shows the two surge towers serving the Mill Lake power plant.
The left surge tower is connected to the polypropylene penstock from Coon Lake, although
you can’t see the penstock itself it’s position can be seen by the mound of soil
where it has been buried.
The right surge tower is connected to the fibreglass penstock from Sandy Lake.
The photo to the right shows the surge tower serving the Tidewater power plant.
This view is from the power house and shows the fibreglass penstock, this then changes
to the original wooden penstock beyond the surge tower & then on upto Mill Lake.
The photo to the left is taken from beside St. Margaret’s Bay Rd, you can just see
the wooden penstock to the right of the surge tower which brings the water from the
control dam at Mill Lake.
