In the lowest level of Station 5, hand-laid walls of beautiful cut stone bring to mind the foundation of an old farmhouse, or a musty catacomb.
Nearby hangs a collection of huge wrenches, once used to tighten giant bolts but now, tarnished by time, serving only as a reminder that Station 5, a hydroelectric generating plant hidden away in the Genesee River gorge, has been around a very long time.
Rochester Gas and Electric Corp., which has owned the plant since the current version was opened nearly a century ago, is in the latter stages of a $111 million upgrade of Station 5, the largest of three hydroelectric facilities the company operates in Rochester.
