(What do these stats mean?)

This is really just a small wide cascade system carrying excess water from the nearby Bingham Chute Generating Station. A small dam on the south side of the road allows maintains water levels to provide enough head for the small generating station, located about 200 m to the north of the road. The Chute is located on the north side of the road, immediately downstream of the bridge. Flows are variable, and I assume that when flows are low, all water is diverted to the generating station. North of the road, the river spreads out into several channels, flowing over several low rapids and around several small forested islands. None of the falls are of any significance, but given that this is on the side of the road, is worth a little stop.  (updated 41810).
