Looking west at the BC Hydro Lower Revelstoke Dam. Revelstoke Dam Visitor Centre is located atop the west end of the powerhouse. It houses a large exhibit area, a theatre, gift shop and other visitor facilities. The exhibit area shows how the Revelstoke project was built and illustrates various aspects of power production. Revelstoke Dam is Canada's second generating project on the Columbia River and one of four dams in B.C. that regulate the flow of the Columbia. Located about 130 km downstream from Mica, the Revelstoke Generating Station has an installed capacity of 1,843,000 kW. It has provisions for an ultimate capacity of 2,764,500 kW which would make it British Columbia's most powerful hydroelectric development. The hydroelectric complex is composed of a 175 m high concrete gravity dam located Little Dalles Canyon, a 122 m high earthfill dam on the river's west bank, and a powerhouse in the riverbed immediately downstream of the concrete dam.
