Dam Gouin

Erected in 1918,the dam Gouin serves to regularise the waters of the basin, which helps the supply of hydroelectric power station.  Below the dam Gouin, 12 hydroelectic power stations have been erected in the last century; ten are still active. There are no visits possible to the hydroelectric instalations. 


The word Wemotaci comes from the name of a hill. Our ancestors translated this meaning by the action of wind on the snow that forms waves. An other definiton means: an observation place referring to the mountain situated behind Wemotaci. 


It is impressive to see this landing stip in the middle of the forest, she apparently dates from the years 50.  The goal was to be ready for any ugent landings and refueling during the period of the war. The track is 2.5 km long is 3 feet thick.  You can see underground installatiosn and well as barracks.
