The straight line is the penstock pipe, the wiggly one under snow is the access road. The open water in the lake is on the extreme upper left. A tunnel connects the lake with the penstock pipe. The road is an access to the tunnel and leads to a “spoilage site”, where waste rock from drilling the tunnel was dumped.
