Whalen Diversion Dam Canal

LOOKING Closer

Whalen Diversion Dam is roughly 10 miles downstream of Guernsey Dam and Reservoir, the last major dam on the North Platte in Wyoming. The dam diverts water into the Interstate and Fort Laramie Canals and is then distributed to farms in Wyoming and Nebraska for irrigation. Two cameras are mounted on the same pole, looking upstream and downstream. The downstream view looks over the North Platte River behind the dam and the north irrigation canal. It diverts water into a vast array of irrigation canals and ditches throughout the state of Wyoming and Nebraska. This camera has been retired.
