Gouin Dam / Barrage Gouin. Gouin dam (CTP3) is a waterdrome north of La Tuque (CYLQ), Quebec, Canada. By Jean St-Cyr.
The Gouin Reservoir (in French: Réservoir Gouin) is a man-made lake in the central portion of the Canadian province of Quebec. It is not one contiguous body of water, but the collective name for a series of connected lakes separated by innumerable bays, peninsulas, and islands with highly irregular shapes.
It has therefore a relative long shoreline of over 5,600 km (excluding islands) compared to its surface area of 1,570 km². It is the source of the Saint-Maurice River.
The reservoir is named after Jean Lomer Gouin, who was Premier of Quebec when, in 1918, the Shawinigan, Water & Power Company impounded the reservoir for hydroelectric development.
The Gouin Reservoir has no generating station at its dam, but is used to control the flow of the St-Maurice River for the stations down-stream (all operated now by Hydro-Québec).
There are no paved roads to the Gouin Reservoir, but it is accessible by several unpaved forest roads and by bush plane. The reservoir is a popular fishing destination with numerous commercial outfitters and private lodges along its shores.
Gouin dam (ICAO: CTP3) and it's near area contains many of the real buildings:
- Privates chalets (real offroad truck near one chalet)
- Hydro-Quebec house
- Smurfit-Stone building
- Barrage Gouin outfitter buildings (2)
- Kids games near the dock
- Sand runway south of the dam (near the river) that fits with the landscape provided by Gilles Gauthier's meshes.
