(What do these stats mean?)

This is a large cascade that takes the overflow from a large 40 m high hydroelectric dam immediately to the east. The generating station was built in 1990 and produces 15 MW. I haven't been to this site, and I'm not sure if the access road is public. But there is a road from Hwy 17 called 'Steephill Falls Dam Rd', which appears to pass over the dam. If you know anything about visiting this site, please let me know.  (updated June 20, 2014).
