The inlet tower. It is the top of a vertical tunnel more than 1000 feet down into the mountain to supply water pressure to the turbine generators. The tower is more than 200 feet “tall” from the bottom of the reservoir; thew “windows” prevent water from swirling when water is pumped into the reservoir.
