Abstract

Lake Dorothy is located about 20 miles southeast of Juneau, Alaska in an undeveloped area south of Taku Inlet. It occupies a linear, glacially eroded depression at an altitude of 2,400 ft. Several studies have assessed the feasibility of hydropower generation by a tap of Lake Dorothy. One of the proposed alignments, a tunnel to transmit water from lake Dorothy to a powerhouse at tide water on Taku Inlet, crosses Bart Lake, a cirque lake at 986 ft altitude. Fathometer surveys show that Bart Lake is a relatively symmetrical bowl-shaped depression with a maximum depth of 543 ft, and Lake Dorothy is a north-south elongated depression with steep sides and a maximum depth of 569 ft.
