Mississagua Lake Dam Trent-Severn Waterway Community Update

Date Posted:

Trent-Severn Waterway Community Update
Mississagua Lake Dam
Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site
Update on Construction

November 1, 2017 – Work toward the completion of the Mississagua Lake Dam replacement will resume, in full, in the next week. Parks Canada halted work at the Mississagua Lake Dam construction site when a discrepancy in the elevation of the new dam was found during the final concrete pour on October 2, 2017. Work to patch and repair the existing overflow weir went ahead as planned.

A hydraulic assessment was conducted by Parks Canada and the project’s consulting engineers using the current elevation and it was determined that the sills of sluices 1 & 2 (West side) would need to be re-poured to achieve optimal water management and flood mitigation for our stakeholders; as was previously designed.

Residents can expect some construction noise beginning in the next two weeks as the two sluice sills within the cofferdam are removed. It is estimated that the project will be completed and the site restored within 10-12 weeks.

Parks Canada thanks residents for their continued interest and patience as we complete the project.

Background: The current dam at Mississagua Lake dates to approximately 1930 and replaced a timber crib dam that had been previously built in the area. Remnants of this timber crib dam can still be seen in the water upstream of the dam site. While numerous repairs have been made on the dam over the years, there have not been any major rehabilitations since the original construction.

The replacement of the Mississagua Lake Dam is part of Parks Canada’s unprecedented $3 billion dollar investment over 5 years to support infrastructure work to heritage, visitor, waterway and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada. For
