Pointe du Bois Spillway Replacement Project - Aquatic Effects Monitoring Plan
|Location:||Pointe du Bois on the Winnipeg River, Manitoba|
Services Provided by NSC:
Manitoba Hydro undertook a project to replace the existing spillway and sluiceway at the Pointe du Bois Generating Station with a new 7-bay spillway. The project was initiated to maintain public and dam safety and provide a safer working environment for site staff. An Aquatic Effects Monitoring Plan (AEMP) was implemented during the construction phase of the project and will continue for more than ten years into the operation phase. Monitoring Lake Sturgeon was of particular importance given that a population spawned immediately downstream of the dam.
