Dam and Reservoir at Kenton

The small hamlet of Kenton 1 (population of 158 in 1986) gets its water supply by damming a minor tributary 2 of Oak River 3 which in turn flows to the Assiniboine River—off the photo to the south. The dam produces a reservoir 4 just over ½ mile (0.8 km) long south of Kenton 5, which along with Harding 6 and Bradwardine 7 (both now abandoned) is located on the Lenore extension 8.[i]  Lenore is off the photo to the west.
