Geocache Description:

Taukopaikalla Porttipahdan tekoaltaan laidalla hienoissa maisemissa. Kesällä vieressä avoinna myös matkamuistomyymälä ja kahvio. In a reststop near Porttipahta artificial lake with nice view. In summer there is also souvenir shop and a cafeteria.

Porttipahdan tekojärvi on rakennettu vuonna 1970 noin 50 prosenttisesti suoperäiselle alueelle. Merkittävimmät tekojärven alle jääneet vesistöt olivat Kitisenjoen ja Tankajoen uomat.

Vuonna 1981 Porttipahdan tekojärvi yhdistettiin Lokan tekojärveen Vuotson kanavalla, minkä jälkeen molempien tekojärvien vesi on juoksutettu Porttipahdan voimalan kautta Kitiseen ja sitä kautta Kemijokeen.


Porttipahta artificial lake has been build 1970 on 50% marshland. Most notable waterways which went under the artificial lake were River Kitinen and River Tankajoki.

In 1981 Porttipahta artificial lake was merged to Lokka artificial lake with Vuotso's canal. After that water from both artificial lakes have been run through Porttipahta hydro plant.
