DescriptionDam construction. Photo shows workers excavating for the draft tubes that would suck water away from the turbines in the lower level of the power house. Above the excavation is the back side of the coffer dam, which both held back the river water and provided a bed for the railroad cars to run on. They hoisted the excavated rock and dumped it into the railroad cars.
