16.32: The Location of the Limestone Power Generating Station

The Limestone Station on the Nelson River 1 is the newest and the furthest downstream of the hydro stations on the Nelson. The site of the dam 2 is clearly seen on this satellite image. It is located just above a set of rapids seen as a variation in colour of the river on this image 3. Also visible is the path of the Hudson Bay Railway line 4 en route north to Churchill. PR 280 from Gillam 5 is also visible leading to Sundance 6 on the north bank of the river. Two roads 7, 8 lead westward to a gravel pit 9. The Limestone River 10 enters the Nelson just below the dam.
