6 biogeoclimatic zones in one watershed. Evidenced by the large number of bird species here and even the cut of the valleys on either side of the watershed. True! Different glaciers each with it’s own climate shaped the valleys steep-jagged on one side while rounded-wide-bottomed on the other!

Ross Dam – Wikipedia

Poster Quote:
Ross Dam was built with the potential to be 665 feet (203 m) above river level, approximately 1,725 feet (526 m) above sea level. The stepped “concrete waffle” facing on the front of the dam was designed to accommodate final phase to attain this height. This would have flooded land into Canada approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) further than it does now, also bringing the generating capacity to a desired 732 MW.
