Powell Lake was named in 1881 after Dr. Israel Wood Powell, a medical doctor from Ontario who worked for the British Columbia government during the 1800's. A fjord lake, it spans some 50 km in length and is 24 km wide. In 1924, when the Powell River Company raised its dam on Powell River for a second time, the lake level rose to 56 metres above sea level. Although a fresh-water lake, a 1961 study by the University of British Columbia proved the existence of salt water at the bottom of the lake.
