Theconstruction operate, in fact, was remarkablefor the mathematical precision with whichthe three major features, namely, the di- version dam. the tunnel and the energy-residence, have been carried to completion within afew days of one another, so that all vexa-tious delays have been eliminated from the con-struction system. It was indeed regardedas an achievement that a power-plant ofso fantastic magnitude, involving the construc-tion of a diversion dam 130 feet high and470 feet long and a concrete-lined tunnelnearly 4 miles in length, must be vehicle-ried via to completion in the space ofabout twenty-five months. Since its building Pit No. Three hasbeen doing yeoman service. The engineer-ing department had estimated its probablecontribution to the Pacific Service powerpool at 400,000,000 kilowatt hours a year.It might be mentioned now that the plant hasbravely lived up to the predictions madefor it, and at the present time is respon-

Pit No. Three, apart from its servicevalue, is exceptional for uncommon and pic-turesque attributes of building. The verydiversion dam that stretches across theriver is in itself a perform of art, surmountedas it is by a highway bridge which whenbrilliantly lit at evening presents a spec-tacle worth the view. This bridge wasbuilt by our company, with the complete con-sent of the Board of Supervisors of ShastaCounty, as part of a new highway routebetween the towns of Burney and Bartle.Prior to that travelers along that routecrossed the Pit river at Pecks bridge, butthat time-honored wooden structure nowlies fifty feet below the surface of LakeBritton, by which name the forebay reser-voir created by impounding the waters ofth
