Photo of the Week
January 18, 2015
I will post the rest of the slides in the next few weeks to come. Only a few more.
Below I captured an aerial
shot off of Google Maps that shows the same area today. I wish I
could have gotten a better capture, but this will do. Note that
all the 1940's Third Locks excavation along with Cocoli Lake has been
absorbed into the new lock project. Much of Cocoli Hill has been
removed. When I toured the new lock site a few years ago, I was
told that he old third locks excavation abutting Cocoli Hill would be
mostly filled and what wasn't filled would be used for the new gate
retraction area and to store lockage water so not to spill out into the
ocean channel. Saving water is a must with these new big chambers.
If they spilled the water out each time a ship went through would mean
using up valuable lake water in excess.
