Dams - Redridge

Earthwork, Dams, Woody Plants, Trees, Water, Lakes The Redridge Log Dam that impounds the water of the Salmon Trout River was built in 1891-92 by the Atlantic Mining Co. to supply its mill (wash) with water for processing copper. In 1901-02 the Baltic Mining Co. built a new large steel dam just 75 ft. north of the log dam and this steel dam supplied water for both the Baltic and Atlantic mills until their closing - the Atlantic in 1912 and the Baltic in 1922.

The photographer was standing where the "gates" were later constructed which controlled the flow of water from the steel dam that had impounded water from the Salmon Trout River. This construction took place in 1901-02 and was completed at same time as that of the dam and the Baltic Mill in 1902. [Image of the construction of the spillway.
