Anyox wooden water pipe remnants

The Anyox Dam transported water from the dam to the powerhouse.  They used wooden stave pipes to transport the water water and used a stack midway to buffer the pressure between the two.  We are able to hike up to one of the stacks and view the remains of the water lines.
