Images from another time

Posted: Tuesday, January 28, 2003

This photograph was taken Sept. 25, 1913, during the construction of the Salmon Creek Dam and Powerhouse. In 1914, in a high valley three miles above the current Bartlett Regional Hospital, Salmon Creek Dam came online. The dam is one of the four hydropower plants that Juneau relies on, generating approximately 10 percent of Juneau's electric power. Salmon Creek Dam is capable of producing 26 million kilowatt hours in an average water year. The facility also supplies drinking water to Juneau.
