Wow, bradatlarge and Throttlemeister - great comparison shots. The rapids really are diminished.
I do not recall the exact numbers, but remember reading that the flow of Rupert is reduced to about 50% of original.
That's actually an impressive project: a big section of Rupert's basin is "fenced off' by dams and the waters are re-routed through a tunnel to another river's basin - all in the middle of the sub-Arctic.
Indeed, no such thing as free electricity.
