Sick post man, looks like an amazing venture. Again, great captions!

By the way, what are you shooting these with? They came out beautifully.

Funny story about that. It woulda been all my Olympus, but 3/4 of those photos did not even expose properly (mostly my fault!). So most were taken on my wife's new camera, a very nice Canon 880 digital she grudgingly let me use!
But really, its a bit of photoshop CS4 color enriching that gives such nice look! the wonder of hue and saturation!

These are fantastic shots, but so few. Have you any others you could also post?
CartLegger: 3rd Mar 2009 - 23:26 GMT
well, there has to be a certain economy to things, for many reasons. Among them, No one wants to see too many pictures of the same thing, and I don't have too many--most of mine were overexposed!
But I'll dig up a few more, dam it!

Still working on that one...

The houses in your shots have the valves that regulate the overflows, and the gates shown in first shot. As I have heard, there are tunnels actually to the city, huge ones! Usual practice is to have the inlet under the resivour, but near the dam, so you can't see it.

TREES ARE THE BEST DAMS:THEY DEFY GRAVITY!
The plethora of dams already there and now being built at a feverish pace in Asia,China,Iran and other parts of the world will result in a catastrophe harming the entire globe by enormous heating,hurricanes,cyclones,floods,fires,landslides and with increased numbers of nuclear power plants result in genpatsu-shinsai-a simultaneous earthquake and nuke melt at the same location(It almost happened at Kasiwasaki Kariwa on 16th July 2007 and the giant unit there is still shut down). Of course, complete melting of snow caps, glaciers, the arctic and the antarctic will occur at a furious pace.And perennial Himalayan river flow will vanish.
Vote for Change. Even trillions of present value dollars for a business as usual future is bound to be useless.

Thanks so much for contributing.

trees defy gravity! :-0
a quick look at google indicates that Mr. R. Ashok Kumar must fee lvery passionately about dams, as he has posted stuff like this to many, many blogs.
perhaps this is his facebook?
i bet you a dollar he never re-visits this post and sees this, haha...

Mr. R. Ashok "Slidewhistle" Kumar obviously doesn't realize that the New Croton Dam is NOT used for power-generation.
As for the dam's details; check out this online-book. You'll find details of the dam's construction, operation, and some excellent old-timey photographs.
Page 176 has details on the dam's aqueduct connection:

Question "Looking down the imposing edifice led us to wonder 'where along this wall is the pipe that takes the water down the aquaduct the 26 miles to NYC?' Still working on that one... "

I just visited the dam today. It was quite the site in person! I've been living in this area for a couple of years now and was always putting the trip off 'till next weekend'.
