The photo was taken looking upstream (to the east) with the building housing the generators on the left 1 and the spillway on the right 2. A dike 3 was built on the south side of the forebay 4 as well as on the north side (seen in figure 16.29). The riparian flow of the Winnipeg River5 is seen in the centre with the irregular floor of the former river channel to the south 6. Pylons that carry power lines from the station have been built on cement foundations in the old river channel 7. A communications tower is located to the left of the generator building 8.
Note that aspen trees (Populus tremuloides) have turned yellow 9 indicating that this is an early fall photo.
