Iroquois dam gates to be lowered


Ontario Power Generation’s Ottawa/St. Lawrence Plant Group advises users of the St. Lawrence River, including recreational boaters and anglers, that the gates raised for the passage of recreational boat traffic through the Iroquois Control Dam, will be lowered from September 24 to October 26, 2012 inclusive.  

This is for the installation of new marine navigation beacons, warning signs, and safety lighting, and is a public safety initiative related to the passage of small boats through these gates.  

Boaters are advised that they must use the Iroquois Lock for passage during this period.

This notification is in accordance with the operating regulations of the International St. Lawrence River Board of Control.

Ontario Power Generation would like to remind all users of the river to take every precaution around its dams and generating stations across Ontario and to practice safety on Ontario’s waterways.
