Today I stumbled upon a very interesting historical document in the clutter that is my office. It was written by a former Manager of Public Works in the City of Port Alberni in 1993, five years after he retired. It’s called City of Alberni Water Supply Systems 1890-1993. And Although Hole-in-the-Wall is not specifically mentioned dams upstream and downstream of it are. And three those dams are still there. The lowest one by the railway trestle is gone. I tried scanning the document into a PDF. But sadly my technical skills aren’t up to doing that. So here are 3 JPGs that I hope are legible.

I've lived in Port Alberni for most of my adult life. I worked as a professional forester until a few years before retirement. I specialized in silviculture; that is the regeneration and tending of young stands of trees, and in forest inventory. I have spent an awful lot of time in the old and young forests and in clearcuts on Vancouver Island, in all kinds of weather. I have always watched birds and been interested in the natural world that sustains us. And toward the end of my working like, I spent a few years showing people how wonderful this part of the world is. View all posts by sandymcruer
