Hamilton Hydro

Exploring hydro corridors in Hamilton was inspired by The Meadoway in Toronto, and exploring the hydro corridors there.

Within the urban area of Hamilton, there are 14 active hydro corridors that I have identified to date based on information from Hydro One. These stretch a total length of 115 km and cover an area of 760 hectares. Below is a short inventory of those corridors. More details will follow as I explore them further.
