Point of Interest Details

Look for the historic building in the gorge below from the upstream side of this bridge. The water fed into this hydroelectric power plant comes from a pipe eight feet in diameter that carries water from the Beebe Lake Dam underneath nearby roads. It currently generates 2% of Cornell University’s electricity. The University set a goal to upgrade this plant and increase its electricity production by 20% to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
