Canoe Annapolis County Route 12 - Corbett and Dalhousie Lakes

Route 12 – Corbett and Dalhousie Lakes

This route consists of two lakes that are part of the Nova Scotia Power Nictaux Development. The
water levels in each are controlled, and fluctuate with the demand for hydroelectric power. Dalhousie Lake is,
in reality, a section of Bloody Creek that has been dammed to form the present lake.
Water levels in Corbett Lake and Dalhousie Lake can fluctuate dramatically, depending on NSP
power generating activity.

Point of Interest: During an aerial photo survey in 1995, what is known as the "Bloody Creek
Structure" (BCS) was identified as a possible impact crater, located within the reservoir of Dalhousie Lake. It
was defined through the use of ground-penetrating radar and magnetic surveys. The crater rim is
approximately 0.4km in diameter and slightly elliptical, and may be an indication of oblique impact. The
relatively shallow depth of the BCS may be the result of significant erosion by glaciation and erosion, or the
impact occurring on glacial ice overlying the bedrock. The crated site is under water.
