Some gates at the Iroquois Dam have re-opened
Recreational boaters and anglers who utilize the Iroquois Dam will now be able to use the dam once again. High water levels had forced the closure of the gates used by recreational boaters.

Iroquois - May. 25, 2011 - Recreational boaters and anglers who utilize the Iroquois Dam will now be able to use the dam once again. High water levels had forced the closure of the gates used by recreational boaters.

Ontario Power Generation advises users of the St. Lawrence River, including recreational boaters and anglers, that some of the gates of the Iroquois Dam have been raised while others remain lowered at this time.

Brent Morton, Operating Manager at the R.H. Saunders Generating Station, located west of Cornwall, said that the company has been dealing with heavier than normal rains, which has prompted the frequent changes in the gate positions of the dam in recent weeks. Ongoing maintenance activities and the weather may mean that gate positions will change for an indefinite period.

The gates used by recreational boaters are open and should be navigated with extreme caution at all times. Media notification will be given about changes in the gate positions when possible.
