Rideau Canal,Lower Brewers,Lock 45

Lower Brewers Lockstation is located at the south end of a widening of the Cataraqui River, which forms a small, shallow lake. The lock was built on the east bank of the river in a short excavated channel that created a small island.

The original river channel is a short distance to the west of the island. An earthen dam crosses the river from the island running to the west, creating the shallow slack water section to Upper Brewers.
