Inscription
In 1919 the Sinks Canyon Hydro Electric Company built a power plant in the canyon to provide electricity for Lander. A dam was built upstream of the Sinks. The dam diverted part of the Popo Agie River into a pipeline which carried the water to the stone power plant at the Rise. The water flow throught (sic) the plant's turbines generated 500 horsepower. Power lines carried electricity from the plant to Lander until 1955, when the plant was closed. Today the stone power plant is empty and the dam upstream is slowly eroding away.
