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

There are 12 active hydro corridors that I have identified to date based on information from Hydro One. These stretch a total length of 83 km and cover an area of 400 hectares. Below is a short inventory of those corridors. More details will follow as I explore them further.
