The Cazadero flume was completed in 1907, built from wood to bring water from the Cazadero Dam on the Clackamas river to Faraday Lake, which then powered the Cazadero powerhouse. The purpose of the flume and lake was to increase water pressure by bringing water downstream at less of a slope than the river, seen to the right, thus increasing the head used for power generation. The original photo was taken by Albert Reck, a motorman on Oregon trolleys who was also a talented amateur photographer. A collection of his work now resides at the University of Oregon. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
