Water Pipeline Exhibit at the Charter River Salmon Centre
SOOKE LAKE WATER'S INCREDIBLE JOURNEY TO VICTORIA
The mammoth undertaking of constructing a water pipe flowline to carry water from Sooke Lake to supply Victoria has to be one of the most remarkable feats of engineering ever to take place on Vancouver Island.
37,000 concrete sections, 4 ft diameter by 4 ft length were manufactured on the shore of Sooke Basin and transported by narrow gauge railway northwest as far as Sooke Lake and east as far as Goldstream, where the Humpback Reservoir was built to facilitate the distribution of water throughout Victoria. Visitors are invited to view the fascinating pictorial history of the challenges and the people who made it all happen, during the years 1911 to 1915.
Co-sponsored by the Sooke Region Museum, the show will take place daily, August 1st through September 28th, at the Charters River Salmon Interpretive Centre, 2895 Sooke River Road; Phone 250-642-6351 or 4200.
