Looking down the stairway, past the generator vent louvres, to the turbine floor and the MIV:

Beyond the MIV, there's a low archway with a green 'EXIT' sign above it. This leads to the construction adit, which still serves for ventilation, maintenance access to the high-pressure system - and as an emergency exit. Click HERE to see a page with much more on this adit..

Moving all the way to the 'front' (downstream side) of the turbine floor reveals a short flight of steps leading to a watertight door - this gives access to the tailrace tunnel. There's another page with information on the tailrace - click HERE to see it.
