Caribou Falls Power Dam

We are happy to post that the construction on the barrier near the Caribou Falls Power Dam is complete! A few years ago, it was noticed that the barrier/levy that was holding the water in on the west side of Umfreville Lake was deteriorating. Ontario Hydro had to lower the water on the English River in and around Umfreville Lake to compensate for the amount of pressure that was put on the levy. In March of 2019, construction began and throughout the summer and fall the work continued. The new levy was tested and the old levy was completely taken away and our water level is up by 3 feet where it usually is.
